I don’t know enough about the physical cabling of the UK to say what’s going on, but both Nod and I are having connectivity problems. Portsmouth and Birmingham aren’t that closely linked, as far as I know 🙂 It may just be a DNS thing. 1 in 3 domains aren’t resolving, while MSN Messenger is dropping messages. ICQ, which I seem to remember is IP based, seems to be working fine. Anyone else having trouble?
