    Maybe it's my silly connection, but I'm having huge troubles connecting to servers and websites. Google works, Joystiq works, MR works sometimes and my website. But several other sites I visit have just stopped! Strangely uTorrent is still working.

    Of course Google News isn't working so I don't know what's going on!

    No Problems here. It must be a local problem.

    Could be a server was damaged in that pub fire last night. :)

    MR is back to full speed!
    Google Earth isn't. Flickr, Yahoo, IGN, AOL sites, MSN Messenger and another specialised chat app don't work either.
    Part of me thought some huge American server had gone down or something, but MR is probably hosted over there... so I dunno. all UK sites seem to work :confused:

    Maybe it was RINBOT or DELBOT. I don't think the Internets™ take their cue from Wall Street, at least not yet. :)

    My guess is that it's a DNS or routing issue for you.

    Jimmi, do you have BT internet? They've been having [more] huge problems today.
