March, it came in like a lion

– by MarinerTeresa

You know the saying, “March comes in like a lion but goes out like a lamb” don’t you? It’s that weather related analogy to illustrate the tempestuous way that March makes its appearance. Well, Mariner’s March certainly came around in an equally turbulent fashion – in the form of some significant server and ISP issues.

Here are the adjectives I can use to describe what happened:


We’re really good at a lot of things but the one thing we excel at is responding. At the first sign of ‘slow’, our ever vigilant web god, Dusty, made us aware of it. When we hit Defcon 3, it was all hands on deck to identify the problem and take steps to fix it. If you visited our website last Friday and over the weekend, you may have noticed that it might have taken longer than normal to check out of our eStore. But because Dusty remained on alert, you probably weren’t affected that much.


We feel compelled to make up for it by extending our 24th birthday celebration for another week. We are still sorting through our issues so we can’t guarantee that should you buy something, that the checkout process will be blazing fast, but at least you’ll have some more time to make your purchase. Just make sure you have the coupon code:MARINER24 so you can get your 50% discount.

In the meantime, we’ll be looking forward to April and those cute little lambs.
