    Plusnet (my ISP) are aware of an issue connecting to some websites. I can't send any emails either because I can't reach their SMTP server.

    Anyone else seeing this with other ISPs? Have the Russians started taking out our DNS servers? :Smile:

    I haven't had a problem but I run a web site for a Heritage Trust and received a message from their web host yesterday.
    I did note that e-mails were not available around that time (I check four e-mail accounts at once using Eudora) but otherwise I've noticed no problems with anything.

    OK..thanks. Might just be Plusnet then....a few sites that I couldn't 'ping' earlier are now back, so hopefully by the time they update their status page at 11:00 things will be sorted out.

    I stopped for lunch today in the mountains between Agdz and Ouarzazate and to my horror discovered the only internet connection I could get was 2G and sooooooo sloooowwww that I decided to wait until I reached my destination near Ait Benhaddou.
    Then when I arrived it was so bloody hot it was all I could do to sit in the shade of the awning and drink beer:Cool:
    It's a hard life this Motorhome lark ain't it?

    I'm on PlusNet fibre and their service status page reported they were having problems with subscribers connecting to some web pages.
    According to them it was resolved by 14.15 this afternoon...
    However, I'm still finding some pages are still very sluggish to load, although speed-tests suggest no slowdown.
