    Is it just me, or are Google and Wikipedia both down? GBATemp, YouTube, Byond, The Escapist and several manga sites all load up as fast as normal, but I can't seem to access Google (either the Firefox redirect or the normal site), Yahoo, eBay, Amazon or Wikipedia.

    Thinking back, it's not the first time this has happened, although at least half the times I've encountered this I've found out within a couple months later that there's been some wide-scale hacking attempt on the most popular sites. Not that it happens often - cyberterrorism isn't as popular as some scaremongers like to think.

    ISP-assigned DNS servers usually suck balls, that would cause this.

    OpenDNS or Google's DNS servers (I much suggest googles) are much better.
