YOUTUBE IS DOWN!!!!
« on: February 24, 2008, 02:19:13 PM »
Youtube crashed and has been down for a day now



http://www.techcrunch.com/2006/08/15/youtube-goes-down-for-the-first-time/


Admin,
I think there should be an extension of the robot contest due to this youtube failue AND b/c of that little mishap with the forum earlier this year


B/c of this there will be no videos on my tutorial of the robot victim finding and obstacle avoiding !!!  >:(
any other sites I can upload video to?

don't believe me?

try going to youtube! ;)   http://www.youtube.com

I still would welcome a small extension to the contest deadlines.

Because I still can't get youtube to work since "that little mishap with the forum earlier this year", I extended the deadline in the hopes I can figure it out by then:

HAHA, it's because Pakistan tried to block it from people in Pakistan because of those Danish cartoons that showed Muhammad.

Read this article about it:

Classic  ;D

It was due to a Pakistani engineers mistake when he was attempting to carry out instructions to block YouTube from being accessed in Pakistan. I cant find the article but I read it a few hours ago. When the engineer was notified of the error, he immediately corrected it.

Heres part of the article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7261727.stm
They then posted another article with the same text but also added much more around it to talk about the method the engineer used to block access and why it went wrong. Cant seem to find it now


And darn you Garri, you beat me to it AND found the article I was looking for. hahaha darn you!

Muw-ha-ha-ha-ha!  ;D

The article was on my iGoogle thing where I put news. It said youtube outage and that was all that's needed to get my attention.  ;D

So, did they actually block it? lol It'd be really funny if they didn't manage to...  ;D

We're merely illustrating their imprudent miscalculations.

P.S. That took me 5 minutes to write.  ;D
