The Federal Reserve suffered a widespread disruption in multiple payment services Wednesday, including a system that banks and businesses rely on to zip trillions of dollars around the financial system each day. After experiencing problems for several hours, the crucial payment system, known as Fedwire, resumed normal operations shortly before 3 p.m. ET, according to the Fed's website.

Maybe stick to something you (kinda) know, like personal-interest-free-economics, guys? Leave the payments to people familiar with computing technology newer than the 1980s...
