      Several major corporate websites in the UK and parts of Microsoft’s MSN service and Hotmail have been down today.

      A spokeswoman for Natwest said: “Yes, we’ve been having DNS (domain name server) problems today which have stopped access to the website. We’re still working on fixing the problem.”

      Sky.com, skybroadband.com and Telstra Europe were also affected.

      A spokeswoman for Sky blamed the problems on PSINet – the backbone provider bought by Telstra Europe. PSINet was unable to comment when we called them.

      The Internet Traffic Report showed an outage at BT's Ilford core router.

      A spokesman for BT said he was not aware of any major network problems today.®

      You know I have not had so much unreliability from an electronic device since I first got a SINCLAIR ZX81, that only worked when it felt like it too, and then only when a pack of frozen peas was placed on it's 16k Rampack to keep it from crashing.........if I had'nt still got it as a table lamp base (YES!), I'd think SKY were using it as a server...........
