Is electronic filing down as well?

I believe EFS is still up.

Thanks Prof., makes me think that the closing of PAIR is a prophylactic bandwidth preservation step.
Mar 14, 2013 at 06:23 AM
No. By definition, the bandwidth crunch will have ended just as the PAIR shut down begins.

Pretty much down as of yesterday afternoon anyway.

Thanks Les - I jumped to an errant conclusion when I noted the timing of the good professor's post and linked the beginning of the down tiime to the post date instead of Saturday.

Da nada. Didn't want you to think you had through Saturday to file.

Public and Private PAIR still working here. I didn't find a notice on the uspto.gov either. Is this for real?

"Public and Private PAIR will be unavailable beginning at 12 Midnight [on Saturday, March 16] and ending at 6 a.m. [also] on Saturday, March 16."
... which is quite different from how I and many others read it as "beginning at 12 Midnight [tonight] and ending [in 54 hours] at 6 a.m. on Saturday, March 16".

"from how I and many others read it as"
LOL - your reading comprehension sxcks.
Just kidding - but is English your second language?

People who live in illiterate houses shouldn't throw stones, anon. LOL.

If you cannot have a little fun at your own expense, you are wrapped too tightly.

3 filed from 5-10pm CST. EFS filing still up.
I'm amazed. I never would have imagined this. It's a completely different USPTO than days gone by.
