(no transcription available)

[ETA - it's me bitching about losing my internet connection. For four freaking hours. Don't bother to transcribe it. :) And now I bed. Again, since I just woke up, saw "INTERNET!!!" scrawled on the back of my hand to remind me to check if it had fixed itself, and indeed it has.

My suspicion is either PeoplePC, or AVG. The first since they're my ISP and the second since at least one other person on my friendslist who's reported something similar is also using AVG as their virus-protection.]

ETA 2 - Apparently, it was widespread, and due to two of the big backbone ISPs that the smaller ones get their service from, Verio and Level 3 going down during the night. Thanks to mr_sarabi for the tip.

ironically (my cellphone's microphone is not the greatest) what I actually said was 'kiss the technology' *g*

OMG! So that's what you sound like. Okay, yeah, so I'm an lj luddite who has only just upgraded so I can listen. I'm the geek girl who still uses pencils.

Hee! Well, that's what I sound like late at night, when extremely pissed off, and talking on a cellphone that gets a reasonably crappy connection when inside my house.

Internet Down

From what I'm reading this morning a lot of people didn't have internet access last night. Two big Tier One ISPs (the ones that provide access to the ISPs we use) where down overnight.

Not just you or your virus protection :-)

Oh yay. She said in her sarcasm voice. Are these the same two Tier One ISP's who were feuding with each other a week or so back and blocking their users from reaching IP addresses hosted by the other?

Answering my own question, sort of; it was Verio and Level 3 that went down. The connectivity feud was Level 3 and Cogent.

I can remember which name I'm supposed to be typing, really.
