If you see this tweeted, you’re luckier than me!

A crazy evening with The Internet tonight. I can access most sites just fine, but the following just refuse to load. It’s almost as if a local CDN mirror is down.

  • Twitter.com and all my Twitter clients
  • Optus.com.au
  • Optuszoo.com
  • Apple iMessages

I’m just lucky I have Clara to act as a liaison officer for me! She’s pretty much relaying all my university group messages this evening.
