Recommended Posts

Everyone make sure you are running virus checkers tonight.


BT is totally down at the minute, and is having an overflow of calls. The usual 151 number is flooded, so everyone is being transferred to 154. The staff at 154 usually have a really quite night, but they are absolutely jammed with calls.


There have been a lot of new worms and viruses released which are causing problems on all IP servers.


Keep your virus checkers updated over the next few days, and keep running checks.


Make sure you have your pop up blockers, firewalls, everything set up. I repeat these viruses are causing a hell of a lot of problems.


I'll update you when Darkstar's updates me on what's happening.

I don't get why people are dialling 154 though. I'm probably getting it mixed up with the 0800 800 154 number we dial at work to report line faults (to be told - it's definately your equipment and not our line - untrue 99.9% of the time)


BTs 154 is just the dept that takes the overflow from 151.......its just a redundant system. :)
