Maybe you were playing a game on Xbox Live last week and you tried to save online. Maybe it didn't work. Maybe you are cursing at the skies, wondering why you ever relied on this newfangled "cloud" technology when back in your day all you needed was a pen, paper, and a string of meaningless numbers and letters.
Well, Microsoft gets your pain. And to apologize for the outage, they're giving out a free one-month extension to any Xbox Live Gold accounts that were affected, according to company spokesman Major Nelson. So go forth and trust the cloud once again. Always trust the cloud. Never question the cloud. All praise the cloud.
