Any one else have problem accessing BF.com on Tuesday 29th March? I couldn't get on all afternoon here (U.K.)

I noticed that badmintonforum.com didn't work for a long time this morning, and I switched the URL I bookmarked to badmintoncentral.com and then it was fine. I just thought it was a DNS problem with the server I've been using and didn't think much more of it.
It's working fine now it seems.

sorry guys, the DNS server crashed for some unknown reason. as i have bf.com's IP cached on my desk machine, i didn't realize it until later. i have kicked it to life again this morning. (late afternoon GMT) sorry about that.
