Community Overload

Meryl finally twisted my arm enough so that i would join Orkut ...yet another friend/business/dating network site like the 200 already out there. I had high hopes for this site because it is backed by Google. Not more than 10 minutes after joining up and adding friends had the site crashed... down... dead... kaput. I just checked, still down. Look, I have 151 connections on LinkedIn, an entire community that I founded grew to about 155 members over night without my help on and continues to be active, and I don't have time to wait around for the slow Friendster servers any more, much less wait for Google to reboot Orkut. Thanks, but no thanks.
