What happened there? (Downtime)

Site down this morning. Was it just maintenance or a problem?

Rather inconvenient

Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

I was in a particulary boring meeting. AO going down nearly made me fall asleep in front of everyone

Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

Our server was down at work this morning so I didn't notice AO - maybe I caused it

Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

The server was running but had no internet access to the rest of the world, this is the exact reason why we pay extra for someone else to manage our servers health

It may be a bit slow all day but we should hopefully be back to normal tomorrow

Strange, I've always found that the documentary " The IT Crowd " has always been reliable in the past !

Not to worry, most people don't.

But to explain. " The IT Crowd " is a comedy show, CH 4 I think, and the girl in charge of the IT Dept knows nothing about IT. When she was going to a board meeting the two geeks working for her told her to warn of the danger of Googling Google as it would destroy the internet, just as a wind up of course !!

Very funny result. It's a good show if you ever get to catch it !
