The best bit about these total idiots is that I am displaying the two different Official Betfair Service status pages.  The "Watch this space!" Product Status page says everything has a green tick, so status is fine!. The Exchange API status is showing "Some systems are experiencing issues".

They can't even make their minds up on the status let alone communicate it correctly.  Clearly their attempts to fix anything more complicated like software has no chance.

If these regular unexplained stoppage occurrences were to happen in Hong Kong or Singapore their licence to operate will be rescinded immediately for sure. Why do they recur so regularly especially on a saturday afternoon? If there are other serious competitors around, and not a monopoly betfair Exchange would have been toast some time ago, I firmly believe.
