Apparently the internet kind of broke on Tuesday the 12th of August - just a bit like.
Something to do with one of the larger ISPs trying to add more IP addresses.
As a top computer scientist at Oxford University says: " The Internet - you have no idea. It's held together with chewing gum and string. If everyone said, we don't need the internet for a year, let's shut it down , we could make it so much better. But we can't do that."
Makes one think doesn't it. We trust so much in the connectivity we have, on what we can do over the net. If it did suddenly just go dark, we'd be in a right pickle.
