I don't think that it's the school servers, Guessed, because the blocking works on the county server level and I can still get on fine at school. (I love the way the blocking works, it just blocks the most-viewed non-educational sites-- though some people are really pissed now that it finally blocked :] ) So something must have been screwed up that day, whether it was the server, the individual computer, the school's internet access...something like that.

It turns out YWO wasn't blocked - it really was the downtime that prevented me. So I can still get on at school. Sorry for my conspiratorial whinging.

Interesting that it's on a county level, though. They must send the link to the higher-ups to put it on the block list; I know they did that with /another/ site I would spend copious lengths of time on.

Death thought about it.
CATS, he said finally. CATS ARE NICE.
