    Looks like Facebook is meeting its biggest challenge: a DoS attack:


    Service Unavailable - DNS failure

    The server is temporarily unable to service your request. Please try again later.
    Reference #11.1d3fc741.1285271949.6c838fb


    Internal Server Error - Read

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Making life much more boring....

    I'm kind of picturing hordes malnourished and un-showered people stumbling out into the streets in robes and such, blinking like it's the first time they've seen the sun, kind of like they've just awoken from a deep coma or have just been awakened from The Matrix.

    Or maybe they shut down Facebook so that you would get bored and, in your need for a Facebook fix, run out to the movie theater to see that terrible looking "Social Network" biopic.

    Maybe we should establish a Facebook section in Philadelphia Speaks so they can come here and get their fix, just like we used the Phildelphia Speaks page on Facebook when this site was down. fair's fair.

    Yeah it was down yesterday too, I suspect an DoS attack, but Facebook won't admit it...


    Twitter is always up and down on the web. It never is down on the phone networks.
