BBC sites are down
Now, no-one knows why this has happened, but there's rumours of a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack. If you don't know what that is, but don't want the technical lowdown, it is basically when a bunch of people set their systems in motion to flood the bandwidth of a site, so no-one can use it.
BBC iPlayer's Twitter account said this morning: "Hi, we’re experiencing some technical issues at the moment, which we hope to resolve soon. Sorry for the inconvenience."
Of course, the Beeb have got their engineers working on it, so it might intermittently work for some people, but basically, it isn't really working yet.
The folks at IsItDownRightNow confirm that everyone is having problems with Auntie Beeb.
