Did anyone else notice that PressF1 and PC World were down? All other sites worked fine, so it's not my PC.

It wasn't the only site I couldn't access, two or three other local sites were a bit shaky, using two different computers and two different ISP's with modem swaps as well.

Yep, same here. Was down at 8.30am today and was working again at 12pm :)

I couldn't get to fairfaxnz.co.nz, so it might have been something to do with the servers Fairfax manages :confused:

I believe they host their website in their own bulding, rather than at a datacentre. Therefore if there is a problem at the building such as loss of power or telecommunications, it is likely to go offline. Datacentres on the otherhand have redundancy systems in place. I have found it is one of the more unreliable websites I visit.

It was working at 10:40 am - 11:00am when I came online. Like wise, I got here around 10.35. and went straight in, posted about 10 minutes later, no worries at all today.

Ditto. Maybe they were fixing the clock?



Yeah Right!

Maybe the clock was having a time-out for slacking.
