Etisalat Gone Haywire!

Was it just me?? At around 11 a.m. this morning when I was trying to routinely go online and check a few websites, everything was coming up blocked, blocked, blocked... everything! After a while of closing and reopening my browser, trying a different browser and rebooting the router, everything was still coming up with the blocked message.

After several minutes the Abu Dhabi Police website link worked, then the Etisalat link and more and more started to come back online. Did anyone else have this bizarre experience?

It's been working fine for me all morning. Guess it was just really bad timing on your part!

Sad nerdy type that I am, I did experience extended download times to UAE servered sites, elsewhere, BBC etc, immediately opened!

Could be somebody playing around with UAE settings, as I do with mine!
