Short Take: eBay site goes down again

eBay today extended its four-hour scheduled maintenance shutdown for an extra 2 1/2 hours because of "issues with a routine hardware upgrade," the auction site said. Users could view listings and search for items but could not place bids or list new items. The system restarted about 6:40 a.m. PT and all auctions ending on December 28 were extended 24 hours. The delay was not related to load or traffic, said the company, which experienced its fourth outage this month.
