  • Anybody notice the lack of Google this morning?

    From 9AM - 10AM (GMT) we were unable to access Google, from three different ISPs (BT, Eclipse, UK Online). Anybody else see any problems?

    Trying to get in got "connection refused".

    I tried to Google for the relevant article on The Register and Slashdot... Recursion (n): see Recursion.

        Possibly. I didn't think to try it from JANET.

        Which ISP are you going through, out of interest?

        Just remember kids, if you type 'google' into Google, you can break the internet. OpenDNS prevents me from linking a Youtube video

                    I didn't notice, but personally I don't track it that closeley and frankly could care less if google, yahoo, msn, etc. are up or down. I've got my own network problems to deal with.

                      Maybe I have been missing something, but what is
                      1 1 was a racehorse.
                      2 2 was 1 2.
                      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

                        It's one of those search enginey thingies. Frankly I don't get this whole "interweb" idea. Is the library not good enough anymore?

                          No problems here via Virgin Media. However, I did have an issue a few weeks back where google seemed to think every site was potentially malicious and took restrictions to a whole new level. When you can't even access www.bbc.co.uk, you know something is wrong.

                          It then went back to normal. I thought it may be my computer but the message stated it was from Google.
