For the past week plus, I have been without any internet access. Why? My ISP (a free ISP), which I have used for the past 10+ years have died! Died because of unknown reasons, all I know is that I can log into the system but webpages do not load. Trace routing connections shows that past into their main router, everything dies. No DNS, no Telnet, no FTP, no Nothing! And yet when you log into their status webpage - http://www.metconnect.com/status.html it says its OK! ARGH!!!!
So until they get their act together, I am either to go to a friend's house and use their connection, or twiddle my thumbs until they fix the problem.
So until next time - when ever I can get back on, laterz!
