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.

The Daily has reached out to Wientjes for comment.
