Hello Sweden, where are you? .se FAILPosted: October 13, 2009
How stable is the foundation that the web is built on? You kind of wonder after the incident last night where the entire .se-domain was unreachable for about 30 minutes. I still had problems accessing some sites this morning.
Apparently something went wrong during a maintenance routine at the Swedish Internet Foundation.
“For an unknown reason, an extra .se was added to the end of web addresses.”
I wonder what the cost of that little “woops, hey, it worked before” is. Considering how our lives are weaved in to the web to an ever larger degree, it is worrisome that things can go so utterly wrong.
