Hi,

can somebody confirm that DMOZ is down for a couple of hours now, or do I have a local connectivity / DNS problem here?

Regards

Peter

A number of users have reported connectivity issues. DMOZ staff has been alerted; thanks for reporting it. (Editors do not see all the problems.)

There was a glitch on the public side of the directory which was fixed in just a few hours.

I agree, twebdonny.

Just a couple of slight flakey hours, and then things were fine again.

Apart from major disruption for several months during the big hardware and software upgrades over a year ago, the ODP hardware is pretty reliable with downtime of only a few hours just a couple of times in the past year, and a couple of errors in scripts which took a day or two to fix (one took a couple of weeks to find and fix).
