Government use of unreliable web servers

Yesterday I got up early to pay my IUSI tax. The muni web server was down. After about two hours of trying it finally came back up.

Today it is SAT. The server that offers the login page and offers you some choices is up but when you try to do anything real it times out. It claims is its name. I have been trying to get it to talk to me for over two hours.

I am all for online access to government but that means the government needs to take having their servers up seriously.
