The server is probably down - happens all the time.

That's the REAL problem. Are RIM admins sleeping? I'm trying to test my application and I need it to be deployed on my BlackBerry device 20 to 30 times a day. I don't want to stop working because RIM is having problem with the signature servers. 24/7 uptime isn't so hard to get, no? Having to stop working because I'm unable to sign my application makes me very angry. It's the fourth time since the last two weeks. Each time, I must wait 1h or more to get the service back. This service MUST be 24/7!!

And no I can't use the simulator because I'm using a USB scanner and a Bluetooth printer.

Again, I'll wait until these super servers get back online.

There is a direct correlation between the urgency of the need, and the possibility of failure.

I believe this is part 5 of "Murphy's Law". "The more you need a thing, the more likely that it is lost or broken".

I have to share your frustration, though. You would think that a multi-billion dollar corporation could afford some redundancy. I'm guessing that there are an average of 4-5outages per week.

Just in what little and simple programming I've done I've seen these outages as well.

Right! Developers need this service to work with RIM products. I don't like to depend on others, but RIM has built their environment this way. I'm okay with that, but please, be consistent with your choices!! Developers around the world are using this service. Having only one server to manage it is... stupid! And even if there's more servers to handle the load, the setup isn't working, so redo your homeworks!
