Facebook outage caused by programming error

As developers we can completely understand how a simple programming error can cause a site to go down.  Facebook is not immune.  The facebook outage yesterday was caused by an un-handled error condition in the code that resulted in a complete crash of the system.

Glad they have it figured out for now.  There goes the economy and productivity.
