USPS package tracking is down?

Or is it only me? Since yesterday, in fact I was tracking three packages and I was able to track the first two but the third one gave me the error message. Now all three give me the error.

Maybe I broke it?

I'm not getting anything useful "Your item departed a shipping partner facility at 5:23 pm on January 9, 2019 in COMPTON, CA 90220" but I don't get an error.

IME it's down for a little bit every day or nearly so.

I'm trying to track an Express Mail package, too. At various times, I get various messages, like "Tracking number not entered into our system" - bullcrap. Or "We don't have any information at this time".

I couldn't use FedEx because all we had was a P.O. Box number.

Hasn't been down for me. I've been tracking a USPS package for the last few days and it has worked each time including this morning.

In my experience, it seems to be down for a while everyday, especially in the late afternoon.

It came back up again a few minutes after I posted. But I swear it seemed like it was down for more than 12 hours. I suppose more likely it was down then up then down again. Sorry for the unnecessary thread.
