The Masked Tulip

Did America Just Get Nuked?

Recommended Posts

Just lost all connection with US websites, Messenger down also and I noticed UK sites with ads fed from US servers are hanging or not displaying the ads.

Did the Yanks just get taken out or did the cleaner unplug the router?

TMP is close to Cardiff which is built on a time rift.

Depends on your ISP, one of their transit providers might have had a major routing or peering outage. If it happens again a traceroute or tracert might help a little.

I was forever calling up Demon Internet to tell them their net connection with the US had gone down and this was back in 2000 but it can happen.

Why did you do RedHat?

just random and in the US.

Everything is back now - must have been a switch at one of the big players somewhere on the US side...

Yes, I know the feeling. It's always either a nuke attack or something wrong with a swtich...

I always thought after a nuclear attack all that would be left is the internet (and cockroaches). In fact I thought that was the primary reason for the internets existence.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARPANET

The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET), was the world's first operational packet switching network and the core network of a set that came to compose the global Internet.

In the 1950s, the United States Department of Defense was concerned about the ability to survive a nuclear first strike due to a dependence on an effective communication network. Paul Baran of the Rand Corporation concluded that the strongest communication system would be a computer network that would be able to break messages into units and that the network route these message units went along a functioning path to their destination, where they could be reassembled into coherent wholes.
