    Well If your the only person that can fix anything....

    Perhaps it was the cleaner who unplugged it to vacuum

    Surely that's a Netmedia issue, not BGfL?

    Re: Service Outage Warning the day after

    Yes i knew you were going to say its on the website... i was just pointing out that the email came the day later.

    EDIT: Dont Get me wrong, its good the we get email update and we didnt get this problem in the past but this one was rather funny. On a side note who out there hates the morning rutual of checking sites (such as provider) for updates just incase there something there or interest/problem.

    Re: Service Outage Warning the day after

    Code:
    The page cannot be displayed 
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    Problem The host name resolution (DNS Lookup) for host name www.alwaysblameben.com failed.
    Am I the only one to see the irony behind that? Or the only one stupid enough to click it
