Explosion at the planet brings down thousands of sites


Explosion at the planet brings down thousands of sites This may be a little off topic, but I just wanted to post a message about some of our friends in cyber-space. Sites like PocketPCThoughts, MobilitySite.com and even my favourite comedy site – b3ta.com have been pulled off line following an explosion and fire at ThePlanet which has destroyed part of the building. It appears that, although no servers were damaged, the explosion in the electrical equipment room caused walls to move several feet from their original position. This is affecting around 9000 servers, so you may find quite a few other sites off-line today.

Whilst I’m here, the HTC Touch Diamond videos should be online later today. Apologies for the delay!
