    If you're like me on NTL or other UK isps you might have been having issues.... here's why.

    One of the 2 main links between usa and uk went down... the other one went down start of Nov and they havent been able to repair them, they both handle bout 640gbits of data, and its just not happening at the moment, hence no messenger, no hotmail etc if you're in the UK at the moment till the routers reprioritise routes.

    that AND..... i just got this message....

    UK Internet Services hackers are attempting to bring down UK ISP's with DDoS attacks on DNS servers, expect complete loss / slow service from, ntl, bt, blueyonder, demon, pipex and freeserve, currently un-affected are nildram :: All part of a hacker competition called the loft.

    hmmmm :lol:

    I have an assignment to do and i cant do it! GRRR, i can see it now.... 'Sir, can i have an extention becasue there are these guys and they think its funny to knock out the UK's Internet' :(

    I'm having problems occuring with some pages. Most are accessible after a few tries.

    The majority of the outage from my perspective is the west coast of america, there seems to be a few sites in other places going down too. I suspect the chance aspect of it maybe through which transatlantic link it's taking though.

    Crackers are ****ing annoying though, what do they expect us to do, laugh and say "ahhh yes taking the internet down is funny - have a cookie"?
    ****s.

    I'm on Nildram and it was briefly playing funny a couple of hours ago... seems to be better now. May or may not be related to this.

    Same here, but I'm on Pipex ADSL. Luckily it seemed to recover itself at about 21:00ish, so I wasn't forced to talk to RTT all night.... ;)

    I'm on Pipex ADSL (1Mb :p) and had the same as most people, a few sites took a couple of tries to load up last night. All seems fine now though. Maybe a giant sea-monster has been chewing and the transatlantic fibres?
