Down since 5 pm apparently

If this is still going on tomorrow will mass panic ensue, or will people just shrug and carry on with their lives?

It is Gaia correcting the environment.

In which case, She is being surprisingly gentle.

For now.

If the internet crashes, young people might think: "I'll drive an HGV!"

Yeah, CB's miles better than the iterwebz! 10-4

Perhaps it's a test to see how society will cope.

Years ago the TV for quite a lot of the north of England went down for about 20 minutes. It turned out the cleaner was doing the cabin at Emley Moor Transmitter and unplugged something to plug the hoover in.

Well, TVs been down in North Yorks for weeks now, because of some mast or summink

But presumably they're all coping fine, have been raised the hovis way. They'll be playing cricket in street, fishing in the village pond and building dens in the hay barn

That's nearly as good as the one about the hospital cleaner unplugging life-support machines to do the hoovering.

The world would be a better place with social media, sadly it will be back.

Not sure why everyone is freaking out, it's not like YouTube has gone down or something.

fogsake - 04 Oct 2021 20:32:24 (#13 of 88)

How about yahoo?

Verdigris - 04 Oct 2021 19:33:19 (#14 of 88)

It's made zero difference to me, apart from having another pointless thread in which to post pointlessness.

widenation - 04 Oct 2021 20:34:02 (#15 of 88)

http://askjeeves.com is still OK.

DesEsseintes - 04 Oct 2021 20:34:47 (#16 of 88)

Long as Twitter doesn't go down.

There'll be no news if Twitter goes down.

fogsake - 04 Oct 2021 20:34:52 (#17 of 88)

Has the Queen died?

AdonisBlue - 04 Oct 2021 20:36:36 (#18 of 88)

The most harmful social media (Twitter) has to be the one that bloody survives.

DesEsseintes - 04 Oct 2021 20:40:05 (#19 of 88)

stolen from Twitter :

'A nurse (poc) just shouted "what will the Karen's do without Facebook?" I love this ward'

Pft, Twitter didn't cause Brexit and elect Trump!
