Major outage world-wide

#1 Post by Boac » Tue Jun 08, 2021 10:36 am

A mass web outage, believed to be caused by a data centre provider named Fastly, (shortly expected be renamed...) is impacting several popular websites. Many media websites are 'down'. Will we miss them? :))

I think the plan is to launch Bezos into space to fix it.

Never noticed anything despite being on the HMRC site at the time.

Not affected. Mainly media sites. All seem to be back up now.
