EDIT** Started at 6:45 eastern

I was able to post this thread, and then it progressed into a total outage. Lasted for hours.

Connecting by IP, not using DNS.

ya pretty ridiculous I might add. I tried getting on CF shortly after I got home after work and it was white screened. That was around 3:30PM MST. I tried a couple more times throughout the night but I just managed to get on now (about 11:30PM MST)

Attempting to connect via IP instead of URL won't help if the server on the other end is dead.

If it was a DNS problem it would try for ages then time out, not just load a white screen like that.

it coincided with my internet outtage from (9.30pm gmt - 00.01am gmt)
when i got my access back cf was down which sucked lol.
total coincidence unless both cf and aol's servers are both located in the us and they both went down together.
