Chess is breaking the Internets

I tried to go to chessworld.net this evening to check if any of my current games are waiting for me to move and what did I get but an error message:

Ha! The same thing happened to me! In fact, I've haven't been able to log on for a few hours now!

Darn those chess players!

PS: If you ever want a game, my Chessworld ID is Crusader Scott!

Has the breaking of "the Internets" also resulted in your blog going offline, Jimmy?
