      Hearing about stuff ups like that is very good for the morale of those of us who have to keep our employee's systems running with 15minutes an day and a monthly budget of 5 pounds and a Mars bar. Thus its a service to undervalued sysadmins. Sitting down with a beer when someone else is in trouble may be reprehensible, but its also very comforting.

    I was hoping

    that this story was really about a Telegraph Web Site. Something like GreenKeys, but older yet

    "Mr Wheatstone, come here...".

    I suppose that the telautograph would be a better fit for today's graphics-heavy web, though.

    it was off for me

    from two entirely different networks

    the fashion and dates pages always worked tho.

    Did anyone else that as "outrage"?

    As I was surfing here and there

    I hit a page that wasn't there

    It wasn't there again, I read

    An "Error 404" instead
