Facebook Fixed Yesterday's Outage By Rebooting Facebook

Facebook's two-hour outage yesterday undoubtedly left thousands of acres of Farmville crops untended and countless high school acquaintances unstalked.

 So how'd they fix it? Just like you fix your own stubborn machine: rebooting the entire system. Works every time!
