Snippet: Internet Broken?

December 23rd, 2003

Strange things are afoot on the internet at the moment it seems. Sites I visit on a regular basis (a techy news site which has such a high readership it can “bring down” other websites: the so called “Slashdot effect”) is returning a high number of “500 Internal Server Errors”, and SpamCop (a site for reporting spam) is also returning “Proxy/500 Internal Errors”. Luckily my servers (my two personal ones and the ones I manage for work) are running OK (although earlier a MySQL server failed: but I sorted it within a few minutes), but one of my three incoming POP3 mailservers (the one provided by my ISP Demon) is non-responsive.

Blarg! 🙁 Oh well, gives me a chance to get on with some work…
