    You might want to edit that first URL to remove the final '/'. Safari doesn't seem to like it, but the link works fine once it's removed.

    Interesting. I noticed that Yahoo! was inaccessible earlier today. While I was a bit surprised, I thought it might have something to do with their email upgrade. I suppose in retrospect, that doesn't make a lot of sense though.

    This morning at 11AM EST my mom was cursing yahoo for its sluggishness and errors....I guess now I know why.

    It said international attack...what exactly does that mean I wonder....

    At least this site was not affected by my own experience.

    This is a bummer. it shows just how connected we are to the internet.

    I was wondering why nothing was working this morning... I thought it was a DNS attack or something, but I didn't see it on news pages at the time...

    It seems to me as if the internet is slowly crumbling, and not working...

    My favorite weather site is turning to crap, and images of radar aren't loading anymore...

    It just seems like people are building websites on top of websites on top of websites, and one day, it's all going to come crumbling down...

    I thought it was too, I read the article about it on Yahoo:

    You're probably right. This stuff needs to get cleaned up.

    It wasn't an attack... It was on the Screen Savers. It had something to do with bots.

    They're both working for me now. Does it bug you that they haven't updated the Groups module on myYahoo! for over a year? Oh well, at least they're still available.

    Hmmm...a day later, and I still can't log into Yahoo! That's the only web site that doesn't work for me. I keep getting this error from Safari

    I've tried on PC's in my house, different browsers, reset my cable modem and router...but it's just yahoo that doesn't work. Am I the only one who yahoo shut off after this attack?

    Hmm..Did you try doing it standard and not secure? Maybe that has something to do with it. Are you not able to login? Or can you completely not open the page? It's working for me :(
