called the 0508 number on the offchance, accorrding to the robot it is a scheduled 1/2 hour outage, which is coming up to an hour long so far.

You would think if they schedule an outage that at least a note on the service status page during said outage would be sensible.

I braved the helpdesk.

From what I could get,
an authentication server got restarted, reauthenticating everybody, slow process.

Seem to remember this happening a month or two back.

Can't copy the link on my mobile, but the previous discussion is called "Cable Modem Disruptions" if somebody would be kind enough to copy the link to that here, might help people searching for info.
