BBC suffers DDOS attack

,----[ Quote ]
| According to a missive we have seen, all its sites were slowed down
| considerably last night. For a while the BBC home page was either not
| responding or opening extremely slowly.
|
| In a statement to the INQ, the BBC said the attack originated in a number of
| different countries but didn't specify which. When the Beeb's techies blocked
| international access to a limited subset of servers, it resulted in a marked
| improvement of the serving of bbc.co.uk.

The MSBBC promotes Windows and Microsoft. Good luck with that.

Why is the BBC Running Microsoft Ads?

,----[ Quote ]
| But it's obviously too much to expect a technology reporter in Silicon Valley
| to mention such trivia in the face of the real story about Microsoft's
| perfervid altruism.

Beeb slammed for 'fawning' to Bill Gates

,----[ Quote ]
| BBC viewers have flooded the corporation with complaints over how it
| covered the launch of Microsoft Vista earlier this week.
|
| In one cringingly servile interview worthy of Uriah Heep, the
| Beeb's news presenter Hugh Edwards even thanked Gates at the
| end of it, presumably in appreciation at being allowed to give
| the Vole vast coverage for free.
|
| In other TV news items presenters excitedly explained how Vista
| could be obtained and installed - details courtesy of the BBC's
| website.
|
| But British viewers, currently forced to pay a £131.50 licence
| fee to maintain the BBC's "impartiality", were less than impressed.
|
| Scores got in touch to complain that so much was Auntie up Bill's
| bum that you could barely see her corset.
