The much-talked-about Shutdown Day took place this Saturday (March 24). As you might remember, last week we added the Shutdown Day website to GIGRIB to see if they, in the name of consistency, would also shut down their own website during that day.

Somehow we think our customers wouldn’t be very happy with us if we shut down…
