SUPost.com suffers temporary outage

SUPost.com, an online classifieds site used by the Stanford community, suffered an outage for a period on Tuesday and Wednesday. The page, found to be unresponsive as late as Wednesday afternoon, but was later available late evening.

SUPost, a widely-used student hub for selling used books and other items, was created by Greg Wientjes ’04 M.S. ’06 Ph.D. ’10 several years ago, and has long been a integral part of the Stanford experience. SUPost.com was restricted to members of the greater Stanford community, requiring Stanford University email aliases to post classifieds on the site.
