    bbc site down

    typical i just got into bed flicked the laptop on loaded a program on iplayer now the website has crashed completely! the whole thing all of the other sites like sport/news aswell! never seen the whole thing crash normally just only parts!

    unlucky for the people on the night shift that have just gone into overdrive!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk Is Down -> Check if your website is up or down?

    EDIT: not even fern cotton with the promise of a swimsuit crashed the whole site!

    somebody put on there twitter that there network isn't routing traffic - how reliable that is is questionable though

    nslookups fail aswell.

    It must be something major internally with there network as i would assume they must have multiple external connections to reduce the impact of buildings digging through cables etc
