They've been posting for the past few hours about the Sony server.

These are some of the things they have said.. lol

"Sony is sinking into a pit again. Nice.
Today we planted the ISIS flag on @Sony's servers #ISIS#jihad
Sony, yet another large company, but they aren't spending the waves of cash they obtain on their customers' PSN service. End the greed."

Submission + - Slashdot removes post about hacked climate emails.-> 6

wulfmans writes: When i checked my Google RSS feeds of Slashdot I saw a story that interested me (http://rss.slashdot.org/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~3/Ltx1dUIvKyA/Hacked-Climate-Emails-Stoke-Debate)
I went to click on it and it gave me a page that said i was not allowed to see the page or the page did not exist. I searched Slashdot but the story has vanished. The story said that the mails leaked to wiki leaks were causing a lot of commotion. Since i was not able to read the full post ( Google only gives me a little bit to see ) I am unable to read about this missing story

Submission + - Gmail down again

wulfmans writes: Google's popular e-mail application Gmail is down Tuesday afternoon, in an outage affecting both free and paying users.

The outage began sometime around 1 p.m. Pacific time, and remains down, despite an oddly timestamped message on the company's status dashboard, which says service is back for some and will be restored for all in the near future.

In a message posted at 11:28 a.m., the company wrote "Google Mail service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change."
