Endgadget reports on an Internet outage in North Korea
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea has just four networks that connect to the world wide web -- and none of them are working today. "The situation now is they are totally offline," Doug Madory, director of internet analysis at Dyn Research told Bloomberg News.
After a weekend of spotty connections, the country's pipeline to the outside world reportedly went down this morning.
This was followed by several helpful suggestions. The funniest was the “frantic plea from Kim Jong-un (pictured below) for an AOL free set up disc” to help him get back online.
Maybe someone reading this can send Kim an AOL disc. We all have scads of them lying around unless they all got tossed as soon as they were received.
Send it to:
Palace of the Boy King
Democratic People's Republic of Korea
Make sure it is insured and sent Overnight Mail.
And what if the Internet is actually down in North Korea, wouldn’t that be an indication that it couldn’t have been North Korea that hacked Sony? Or is the Internet down in North Korea as retribution for the Sony hack?
