MSN Service Outage

ABout 20 minutes ago, noone that i know of could log into Windows Live Messenger, on the normal MSN, Hotmail inbox or ebudy or any other thing.

THe message was constantly "Service Unavailable". It is back now.

People already logged noticed no change.

There appears to be nothing said about it on the net, but to me it seems pretty big! Possibility they were attacked?

Maybe, maybe not. There are a dozen possibilities, but 20 minutes of outage isn't that serious. Perhaps someone cut through a power cable or pulled the wrong fuse or something - it happens more often than you might think.

"it happens more often than you might think."
Tell me about it, a few days ago The Perfect world servers went down for a whole day,

Turns out someone typed in a restart sequence by mistake.

I lost half of my stuff because of it, i was annoyed to say the least.

I didn't notice any problem with MSN,but regularly have issues with MafiaWars on Facebook,the most recent being them doing a rollback and losing me over 10 levels and goodness knows how many enhancement items I'd aquired.
