Like others have mentioned, Neowin was down for me as well. Facebook wasn't a big deal because honestly...who cares? Neowin on the other hand...

Well, i didn't notice anything at all.

Might as well suggest you sirs a proper OS, like Linux, so this sort of things doesn't happen at all? /+Jack Unterweger mode off

And YouTube videos don't play for me - the website loads, but the videos cannot be played ...wonder if Putin is behind it: http://rs1img.memecdn.com/just-putin_o_984230.jpg :)

Or if Fat Bastard farted and thus taking down the internet ;)

Winter is coming...

Edit #1: Neowin and Facebook both unreachable. Winter is coming sooner.
Edit #2: CTRL+F5 isn't helping... The end is nigh.
Edit #3: Neowin and Facebook revived. Winter storm warning cancelled. Life carry's on.

They were trying to integrate gifs into cover photos ;)

But Neowin was down for me for a few minutes ...man, I've never sweated that much before! :)

It was down when I read the article, but I seem to be able to connect again. I wonder what happened?
It got fixed?

If I can't get back onto FB within the next 5 minutes, I might start shooting people
AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!
Must resist

:D

Interestingly, probably coincidence, just before the service went down (poor sites that use Facebook for user login), the Facebook tab I have jacked up to using almost a gig of RAM. Enough that I had to stop and check.
