    No, not the Financial Times.

    Haven't been able to load it for the last 2-3 hours, apparently as a result of a DNS failure. Anyone seeing the same thing, or in the alternative having no such difficulty?

    That's Verizon -- your FIOS or DSL provider, perhaps? -- telling you that the flyertalk.com domain is not resolving (i.e., the DNS is not returning an IP address corresponding to the domain).
     
  4. All of Internet Brands is unavailable right now - ouch!

    When FT's down, it reminds me to play around with MP ;)

    Are you sure? I'm still getting the "IE cannot display..." page.
     
  11. Still dead. Maybe there was one too many threads about seat kickers and kids in FC / lounges... grumpy overload did it in.

    [CONSPIRACY THEORY] I wonder if Cartera Commerce contacted their friends at Verizon, you know the ones on strike, to shut down the AA 83K points discussion by crashing flyertalk?[/CONSPIRACY THEORY]

    Its been down for a long time. has it done down this long before?

    FT came back up for a few min and now its back down for me. What came up was missing a whole day worth of content. Even things from yesterday were missing

    It did that for me too, around the same time, but now it looks like it's back up again, at least temporarily.
