Wow.  I didn’t think it was possible in this day and age, but Chase Bank sent out this notification tonight that they’re going to be down for up to 36 hours this week.

They’re a huge bank, with no doubt millions wrapped up in their Web-based services.  And they think it’s okay to be down for 36 or so hours?

Surely, this is a joke.  But it’s not.

You know, Chase, there is a such things as running a parallel system or even using a sandbox so that you switch things over with a flick of a switch, not 36 hours down.  Can you imagine what would have if Facebook were down for 36 minutes?
