    Well....ya can just tell them where the problem lies, and that it's out of your hands, and you'll inform them when it's fixed! Then they can put their overpaid-so called teaching skills into action, get creative, and TEACH!....nuff said!

    ....or just get on with lunch!

    Chill the F out guys!!
    When you're paying for a service, no, its not the same I'm afraid, especially when you have hundreds of users all demanding an explanation and remedy immediately. At least there, they'll only have the network managers calling up asking for info...

    thats alright if you got unlimited data or a strong signal. To be fair i get on with other jobs and stuff that dont need the internet. (although someone stressing above me)

    Fine! Pull the plug on SWGFL then, and go manage your own firewalls, filtering, proxy's, email, ISP etc... et al.....blah! Then see if your end-users are any less p****d when there's downtime!........just saying!

    I charge some of my data back to the school for exactly these circumstances, we have an arangement where they pay a proportion of my phone bill as standard (£10 a month of my £30 a month contract) unless we have an outage, where i track my usage and then bill them for it. So far it's worked well.

    Woah! - DoS attack

    System Status Information Service Status

    >>Update: 15:38

    Our engineering teams have identified the cause as an external denial of service attack and are carrying out actions that mitigate the risk of further interruptions in service.

    The security and integrity of the network has remained unaffected throughout.<<


    Own up, who's upset who?

    That'll be the Rich Tea brigade. They're upset because the HobNob is the average SWGfL geek's biscuit of choice.

    spoke to SWGfL today and it is aparently a reoccurrence of the Ddos attack from yesterday, they aren't giving out much detail.
