Aaroona: Without sounding like a prat, and trying to go too off-topic.
I think its funny how these ISP's and/or Telco's have these network status pages.
If you cant access the internet, how're you meant to see them :P had that problem 1 too many times.

But thats just me :P


I have 2 Vodafone Mobile Data connections and a WorldxChange ADSL connection at home - that provides me the opportunity to access either ISPs support pages if they won't let me connect and hopefully find an answer far quicker than sitting in a helpdesk queue along with every other customer Cool

I then of course jump on this site I found that's called Geekzone and post an update for the world to see Wink
