    So this page appears to be completely devoted to finding out the current operational status of the internet. Not sure if the authors realize that simply viewing the site means the internet is indeed up...one word: wacky

    Worth a look :D

    The fact that they call it "teh intarweb" suggests that they're in on the joke.

    It made me chuckle, but the sad thing is some people do genuinely make this kind of mistake - like our IT department, who emailed everyone to let them know that email wasn't working :rolleyes:

    If we all start posting here a lot more, do you think we could crash the internet? Keep that page open as an indicator.

    If it hasn't come crashing down due to your efforts so far, I think we're safe. ;)

    It's certainly something, but I'm not sure I'd put it on the wall in my lounge next to my Whitstable sunset.

    That's beautiful. I'm going to send it to my staff and tell them to check that before they contact me with a problem. Might make some of them actually think before sending an inane email.
