I have tried to log in using 2 different pcs in different properties but get server too busy? Anyone know if they have a problem.

About 1pm, I was able to contact my friend in Crete via MSN messenger, but not access Hotmail, (server busy).

Hotmail all OK now.

The Internet being exactly that - a network of computers/servers all talking to each other.
So it takes only one server in a particular loop to go down- and at busy times- the 'hole' will not heal is it is meant to by the system bypassing the fault.
So when servers get busy- it may not actually mean your target server, but a server in your local loop.
NTL in my area was down Yesterday an Tuesday
Others reported their connection as fine..
