The MBN has been unavailable to the rest of the world since 8:00 AM on 20th November, 2002.
The MBN wasn't down itself. The building that where the central computer, that provided the internet uplink for University of Twenthe (also provided internet for Saxion Hogeschool and the Enschede Government), has burned down. About everything in that building has been destroyed.
At this time I'm not sure when the network will be restored to it's original status, but when you are able to read this is will most likely fixed.

yeah, good to be back. That day I waited for the net to go here and looked if there was interesting news (on our startpage). Well, I almost got a heart attack, but luckily no injured.

I missed you all! (I'm not going to participate in the group hug)

Just for the record (since a lot of people have no clue about it):

The computers that were burned to the ground did NOT contain any illegal software, porn or whatever.
Everything on them was 110% legal.

Hmm...there is no place for porn in a respected university.
arr....

though i am fond of porn.

Yeah it would be weird finding a porn and warez filled PC in a large university infrastucture :p Well it's a loss anyway, all those PCs gone to waste :o

some press people can't quote, it was 10th of million.
It's somewhere between € 40 and 50 million.
