    Education City Down?

    My kids have some homework to do on there and it appears all of their sites are missing i.e. down.
    Can someone else please check:

    www.educationcity.co.uk and...
    www.educationcity.com

    And let me know how you get on


    P.S. Dear education City. Please at least use a holding page or use Twitter to let us know if you are doing 'something' or if something is amiss please.

    Just tested it and it's still down.

    I found this site a few weeks ago but haven't had cause to try it yet:

    Link: DING IT'S UP! - Website Alerts via Email, Text, and Twitter

    Ding It's Up is a free service that alerts you via text (SMS), twitter or email when a website goes down or when it comes back up. We will never send you a text/email unless it is to inform you about a website you requested information for - you can unsubscribe at any time...

    Server down for 4 days? Sounds like a big problem to me

    Its just started working again here. As mentioned earlier, why they couldn't put up a message about there being problems is a strange one. It doesn't take that much time or effort.

    I logged a call on their helpdesk, the phone number was difficult to find without their site up. I had an email to confirm that the site is working correctly again now.
