Is it me or has the blackout in the states knocked out the MSN website?

Having just done a recent reinstallation, I have not yet configured IE to my prefered homepage and so it defaults to the MSN page. However, this is usually the UK version (or it was yesterday) but this morning I get constant DNS errors and "Cannot find server"

Anyone else have the same probs?

They propably did not apply the 'Blaster' patch to their system. :-))

Morning Jim, How are you? Brian?

Did I not read somewhere that the virus had a package that would attempt a DOS attack on Microsoft today?

Thank you for that! As I said, it was a simple error on my part - I had not set me homepage from the default, otherwise, no, even I would not have either noticed or cared!!!! ;-)))
