GMAC Bank’s Website is Down

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

I haven’t been able to access GMACBank all morning. I wish companies would throw up a “Sorry, we’re experiencing problems” landing page instead of the standard Internet Explorer message that makes it look like the website doesn’t exist.

Hurricane Rita hit my hometown. It’s hard to believe it was two years ago! I still have a tree trunk in my back yard that I’m too cheap to have cut out. It’s an eyesore but a great reminder of just how strong a hurricane can be. Anyway, for those of you who are interested, […]
