You're... KIDDING... right?!

Actual recorded message from my ISP

"If you're experiencing browsing dificulties, please go to www.eim.ae and click 'news' and check 'customer service alerts' "

what kind of a cruel joke is this?! What? 's like.... "Can't broswe the net? no problem, go to such and such site the answer's there"

heh..that's like our Sonic fastfood places over here. If you look at the bottom of the menu it says "If you need assistance ordering, please contact a carhop" its for the handicapped. I wanna scream "If they can push the darn button to call the carhop why can't they order??"

This could go two ways:

a) The connection (router) between the "rest of the internet" and your ISP maybe be down, but since the website listed is "behind" the internet and housed inside your ISP, you may still be able to get to it.

b) The ISP has a very sick sense of humor.

a) I think their own site isn't hosted with themselves (at least it wasn't at some point, maybe is now) local hosting is not that good

b) nah just stupid is more like it.
