geek_lostdude, Oct 5, 12:32 am

Must be a sign I should go to bed

geek_dice4, Oct 5, 12:34 am

You with Xnet?

geek_lostdude, Oct 5, 12:35 am

+1 Orcon.

geek_enigma, Oct 5, 12:36 am

My orcon connections are completely dead, no dial tone either FFS

geek_damon3, Oct 5, 12:36 am

Yep, I'm with xnet.

geek_dice4, Oct 5, 12:37 am

Same with Vodafone.

geek_webhost, Oct 5, 12:37 am

geek_silver-trader, Oct 5, 12:37 am

Yep, mine are coming and going.

geek_enigma, Oct 5, 12:38 am

Same with XNET how does that happen?

geek_aidy40, Oct 5, 12:38 am

+1 Voda (broadband and 3G both).I'm with #2, I guess it's bedtime.:-)

geek_thegilly, Oct 5, 12:38 am

yea, I'd love to stay up and watch everyone panic. It will be all fixed in the morning. LOL

geek_dice4, Oct 5, 12:39 am

Damn it, I'm in the middle of my assignment too, I went to look up some info, and now I have totally lost my train of thought, must be time for a break, I'm gonna go play F1 2010 for a bit...

geek_damon3, Oct 5, 12:40 am

It signed me out of my playstation network as well! cant play ps3 online

geek_aidy40, Oct 5, 12:42 am

K, must be a nation-wide problem... Telecom professionalism shines through yet again /sarcasm.

Telstraclear is looking more & more appealing <.<

geek_lostdude, Oct 5, 12:43 am

Same here on slingshot.Wahh. :(

geek_legaxy, Oct 5, 12:43 am

i sense a long day for those in the call centres tomorrow.

geek_julzd2, Oct 5, 12:44 am

Orcon here too :(

geek_jeremy_74, Oct 5, 12:45 am

LOL, yet you're still able to post.

geek_lostdude, Oct 5, 12:45 am

Werid I cant get onto google its a nz site lol

geek_aidy40, Oct 5, 12:46 am

Fine for me.Downloading from the states as we speak.


geek_dunedin_ree, Oct 5, 12:47 am

Slingshot are also down. Sounds like Australia are being idiots and cut our internet off to annoy us.

geek_hill-beast, Oct 5, 12:47 am

Yeah man, there's always a way, my Dad lives over the road, he's on Vodafone, worst case scenario I can just tether my phone to my laptop.

geek_damon3, Oct 5, 12:47 am

Who are you with?

geek_hill-beast, Oct 5, 12:48 am

But the server hosting it might not necessarily be in NZ.Just because the domain ends in NZ, doesn't mean the actual site is located in NZ.

geek_legaxy, Oct 5, 12:48 am

It's a hostile takeover!!!

geek_enigma, Oct 5, 12:48 am

What did you think I meant by "Snap"?

geek_dunedin_ree, Oct 5, 12:49 am

I can't ping either of the Google DNS servers ( and

geek_damon3, Oct 5, 12:49 am

Aw yea true is stuffed lol

geek_aidy40, Oct 5, 12:50 am

down here to on the orcon+ network.

geek_princelee, Oct 5, 12:51 am

I think snap piggy backs on Telstra's network so of course you guys would be fine...

Just need confirmation from Telstra subscribers to back up my theory... but I doubt they would be on the MB at this time since they're fine haha.

geek_lostdude, Oct 5, 12:51 am

Yeah I was using the Google DNS and thought my internet was cut off for no good reason, but figured that it is getting a connection at the modem so I changed to Slingshots DNS and now I can get Trademe and stuff, but no international stuff.

geek_hill-beast, Oct 5, 12:51 am

Shit maybe its WWIII

geek_damon3, Oct 5, 12:52 am

Anyone know of a proxy server or something that is based in NZ that we could try? Maybe that might not have been knocked down.

geek_hill-beast, Oct 5, 12:52 am

wow the internet is fully broken. We are all going to have to leave the house and talk to REAL people, and wait until 6 o'clock to see the news. *huge freak outs*

geek_dice4, Oct 5, 12:53 am

+1 Slingshot, wonder if some idiot drilled through our fibre link

geek_muntaind, Oct 5, 12:53 am

I've turned pale and broken out in cold sweats, OMFG what am I going to do?!

geek_damon3, Oct 5, 12:54 am

Sure. I'm going to go outside at 1 am in the morning. Yeah that sounds like fun... getting stabbed.

geek_hill-beast, Oct 5, 12:54 am

lol, you must live in the north island then

geek_dice4, Oct 5, 12:55 am

OMG!!!! this is TERRIBLE!

geek_aidy40, Oct 5, 12:55 am

haha, maybe ree can google some proxies for us

geek_lostdude, Oct 5, 12:55 am

It's not totally down, there's little latency between packets (getting 40ms to google here), however there is a high rate of actual packet loss, or I'm just not getting ACKs back, 80% loss.

geek_legaxy, Oct 5, 12:55 am

Blimey thought my DNS or something was screwed, glad I'm not the only one.
Woosh wireless here.

geek_gallifreyan, Oct 5, 12:56 am

It's really ironic that Slingshots customer help portal is hosted outside of NZ and not even on their network.So if international traffic is disrupted you can't actually get to it.Amazing.

geek_legaxy, Oct 5, 12:57 am

I suppose we can use this time to find out what companies are loyal to New Zealand and check who have servers in NZ...

geek_hill-beast, Oct 5, 12:57 am

surprisingly the Telecom XT network still has international access.

geek_segadc, Oct 5, 12:58 am

Mine just times out. Hmm.

geek_hill-beast, Oct 5, 12:59 am

i like this idea.....
