    Straight Talk Main Website Down

    The main Straight Talk website at http://www.straighttalk.com is down. One gets a script error when trying to access it. The BYOP website is still reachable but one gets errors when trying links which refer back to the main website. A 500 Error is generated.
    500 Internal Server Error A generic error message, given when no more specific message is suitable

    It is not working on my iPad. Could you be looking at a cached copy of the web page? Refresh the page.

    That was six hours ago. You do not get an Error 500 if you cannot even reach the URL. You get Error 404.

    I think Time Warner was to blame: Internet outage

    Once the thread is started, there is no way to change the title. Someone has already reported that the website is working again. The originator of the thread is not responsible for it for the rest of his life.

    You're most definitely right, we're just brainstorming for any future outages, don't have to participate though because the original reason for the thread has been satisfied who knows maybe they're shutting it down for some enhancements.

    A 500 error isn't maintenance and it isn't an ISP error - it's an error with the code on the web page. (Officially it's "internal server error".) "Script error" is pretty much the same thing. It means that ST redid the page, but the programmer screwed up. (Trust me, if I had a dime for every 500 error I've written, my ST bill would be paid for a few years.)

    It happens when the company won't put up an entire server for testing, so you have to write the new page online, and there's a typo. (Even a single wrong or missing character can cause a 500 error.)

    Only programmers who are perfect have the right to complain about a server being down for a short time (minutes or a couple of hours) for problems like that. And the next one of those I meet will be the first one.
