    Just a FYI in the last 24h there was a large scale DOS attack on some of the internet's root DNS servers.

    However - if you read the better tech reports it has had minimal effect on the Internet. The root servers are *very* resistant to problems, mostly because many DNS lookups either are cached or are resolved at a lower level.

    I have to say, I'm on the web a lot both at home and work and I only knew about this when I read an article on the Reg. It's good to know the distributed model of t'Internet actually works.:D

    Well I had some delays with some of the US g33k sites yesterday - but attributed it to just traffic delay issues...

    yep - nice to know the web can hold together! :biggrin
