This article is full of it. I can reach every site on that list. The problem, ironically, is that Downdetector is down.

It's the UK.

I'm getting live response from almost all of those. UPS was borked but everything else is running.

I got DNS Failure on UPS and Home Depot. FedEx gave one originally, and then reloaded.

Of course it is. DNS is a weak spot for the Internet.

Fark seems to work. I figured it was a DNS problem since AWS and Azure were all reporting up.

Yeah, LastPass kept throwing up connection errors, but that stopped half an hour or so ago.

Had an email earlier from Twitter telling me someone had turned off my two factor authorization. They then tried to change my email address but I got that email alert. Checking the sign in logs from Twitter showed no one logging in. Twitter sucks.

Airlines including Delta, online stores such as Amazon, games including Call of Duty, streaming services such as HBO Max and a range of banks were unavailable, according to tracking website Down Detector.


Hmm, have they tried waiting a while? HBOMax has the best selection of stuff to watch, but the absolute shiattiest app. You usually wait 2-3 minutes for it to fully load and be usable. My stepson confirms this for the mobile version and the PlayStation version of the app as well. So HBOMax could be working just like usual, and you'd never know the difference.

so I was working for DISA in Arlington VA in their "Internet NOC" back in the early 90's....someone injected the first Internet worm/virus.

everyone was flabbergasted and couldn't believe the damage it caused.

the next day, they moved some desks and counters out and that's when the Cert team moved in.

I asked my boss..Cert?

"Yup...specially skilled network engineers that try to beat the bad guys when it comes to computer terrorism."

I don't even think hackers was term.

also this...

a great book and it was a PBS Nova special.

I watched it the night before my first day at work at the Milnet network in 1991 or so...

Everything is back up now, it was Akamai... they say it was not a hack, but that just makes me about 10x more likely to assume it was.

DoughyGuy: There's an intern who's having a really bad day today.


CSB

AOL NOC...Circa 1994 or so...

was troubleshooting a circuit that went through a OC-48 switch. (thousands of phone circuits routed through it) I asked the "new guy" if he could put up a loop so I can check the line..."Well, I am not sure I can do that, I'm new here"

I told him it would only be for a second...

"well, ok then..."

next thing you know, I hear all these alarms coming from the phone....the OC-48 was in alarm mode because he put it into loop-back mode.

I have no idea how many calls were dropped but lets say...it was a ton of em.

I told him to remove the loop, I saw my signal and the issue was beyond the OC-48.


good times...

We have 1 cable line on telephone poles connecting our village to Town. I learned about downdector donkeys ago: too hot? Down! Raining? Down! Drunk takes out pole? Down! Caltrans says Spectrum too cheap to bury lines & Spectrum says CalTrans won't give permission to bury lines because the 1 road between Village & Town has a 10 year plan for replacing bridge & widening road, etc... AT&T doesn't seem to care.

Thanks for making others aware a a good tool. Downdetector doesn't tell you why, just that it is, but if you are trying to ascertain if it's your problem or the provider's, it's a good tool. Using it, I'm often ahead of the game & inform the poor schmuck at Spectrum who has to answer the phone.

Someone should check if it was a memory or RAM issue.

You should definitely click the link in an email like that without looking at the URL, then enter your Twitter credentials to make sure your account is okay.

CSB: Blackberry NOC in 2004. I uploaded a software patch with a small, yet hit on every transaction, memory leak and brought down the whole blackberry network for about 2 hours overnight on a weekend. We had people complaining to tech support within seconds of the outage. It took about an hour to load up the old software and another hour for the backlogs to clear. By the next evening I figured out the memory leak and successfully loaded my patch.

I miss being an intern.

Someone failing to log in and someone logging in are actually two completely different things.

Morris Worm was Nov 2, 1988.  So sayeth the infallible wiki.  I had just started working in my college computer lab and realizing that those computers were tied to every serious computer in the world.  It was interesting watching the news try to explain what happened.

Sounds about right. I graduated in '88 and went to college. I remember sitting on break one day at Burger King, reading about this new thing called a "computer virus", and yeah, that's exactly what I remember, the news trying to explain what was happening and why it mattered.
