Demon ate my email says R-CompBy Chris Williams. Published: 12th Apr 2003, 22:41:37 | Permalink | Printable
Resend, if you know what's good for youMajor service glitches this week within UK ISP Demon, emanating from a catastrophic series of power failures at their Finchley NOC, have hit RISC OS dealer and software publisher R-Comp, we're told today. Yeh, yeh, this story has 'roundup' scrawled all over it but it is a matter of urgency and R-Comp seemed quite insistent that the web rags cover it. So insistent in fact, riscos.org published their article twice.
If you sent R-Comp an email last week, R-Comp recommend you resend it again seeing as they are hosted by Demon and naturally worried that they've lost mail. Really, this goes for all Demon hosted companies and individuals but before you all resend every mail you've sent this week to Demon users, consider that Demon's systems are probably still under load.
"Apologies to all concerned", R-Comp adds in their statement, "we are obviously concerned about not being able to rely on emails arriving, and will monitor things closely!"
Looking at Demon's status page, right now their mail and routing systems have oh so reassuring red circles next to them so things still appear to be unwell.
