Re: No Facebook

I'd be more worried who they will sell your photos to.

Re: No Facebook

Editor Bob is welcome to my photo, though I'm not normally that splotchy, nor flexible.

Re: No Facebook

I'm getting concerned. I'm hoping the overflow of FB users to EF today won't cause this site to crash. I really will be at a loss. Oh, hang on there's still Google+...anyone using it yet?

And this just in: World population figures set to increase around Christmas 2012 as partners once again find time to talk to one another and copulate.

Now back to the studio and the weather ......
or...

There's a secret group of financial hackers who are now using facebook as a tool to control employee productivity and, indirectly, the world economic status.

Re: No Facebook

I got the message von 20Minuten that FB is still offline from unknown reasons. Now, I can do without 20Minuten but life is hard without FB. At least can have first breakfast iPad free and say goodbye to my spouse in normal fashion.

Re: No Facebook

So far, I've not been able to find anything in English about it, but there is plenty of news in German about Facebook being in / going to court over privacy issues and so is inaccessible.

Here is NZZ in German, and also using google translate to English


I use FB pretty heavily to communicate with friends here, and friends and family back home. Gonna take a bit of adjustment to get along without it, we may actually have to pick up the telephone sometimes!

I always knew Star Wars was ahead of its time...

At least companies will rejoice. Productivity might actually increase today.

Finally, telcom companies and post office will be able to generate more profit within next decade.

Productivity in corporate world will increase "exponentially" without "disabling technologies".

Re: No Facebook

Okay, I guess I will repost my previous relpy in an easier to understand format for those who don't know what a proxy server is...
It seems that Facebook did NOT have a problem... some servers in Switzerland had a problem connecting with the Facebook server. That's why some were still able to access it and some were not. I used a server (another connection) outside of Switzerland to see if Facebook really was down... it was not. Everyone understand now? Happy gaming!!! Gonna go get my sims fix!
