Sometimes, a fashion launch is just too enticing. Target Inc.'s entire website crashed Tuesday, the day the cheap-chic retailer launched the online sale of its limited offerings of Missoni for Target, a partnership with the Italian luxury knitwear designer.

Items include a dinnerware set for $31 featuring the trademark zigzag patterns, $29.99 silk floral dresses, and $12.99 bath towels.

Holly Phares was a mouse click away from becoming the first, and she was psyched. "I want to 'confirm,' " she proclaimed to the three people gathered at the Resources for Human Development office in Roxborough. Everyone stared at the screen bearing the words "Confirm and Save Your Health Care Plan" as Phares positioned the cursor and clicked. Since the health-insurance marketplace opened Oct. 1, RHD has not enrolled one client using the federal Healthcare.gov website. It wasn't for a lack of trying.

New Jersey state investigators want to help homeowners hire contractors who won't disappear with deposits, leave jobs unfinished, or do inadequate work. On Monday, the Division of Consumer Affairs released the names of 44 unregistered contractors, including more than a dozen from South Jersey, who were cited and issued $195,000 in civil penalties based on consumer complaints.

THOSE HARRIED procrastinators who were hoping to file their city taxes online or access related forms on Sunday were met with an unpleasant surprise: Philadelphia's Department of Revenue website was down due to "routine maintenance.

"Why would you schedule maintenance the day before the deadline?" City Councilman Mark Squilla said Monday.
