Why hasn't my return been sent to the IRS?

I did my taxes on Sunday 1/15, why does it still say "pending" on my e-file status?

MeF System Temporary Shutdown -- 10:00 AM EST
10:15 AM EST: The IRS posted the following information to their MeF Status Page:

Current System Status

Production System: Not Operational (updated at 9:30 am, Eastern on 1/18/12)

The Modernized e-File (MeF) System will remain offline for maintenance until approximately 12:00 pm (Noon)Eastern on Wednesday, January 18, 2012. This impacts all Individual (IMF) and Business (BMF) returns including Fed/State, as well as ATS. Transmitters will be able to retrieve any outstanding acknowledgments once the system becomes operational. All accepted return data will be processed downstream following the routine schedule.

this is the reason that no one is being accepted

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
