imdb.com down?

I haven't been able to access the website for the past hour. Anyone else?

EDIT: wikipedia also appears to be down.

Bumping this thread because there has been something wrong with IMDb for several days now. It's not down, but the format has been reduced to the very basic. Anyone know what's going on?

^That doesn't help because, like I said, the site isn't down.

Here's what I see on the main page. Same thing when I log in:

Try Control-F5 to reload the stylesheets.

It didn't change anything in either IE of Firefox, but thanks for the suggestion. So I guess no one else is having this problem?

Re: imdb.com down?

A few people in Ottawa are having the same problem. Could be an issue with your ISP...
I'm in Calgary and I definitely don't have the issue.

edit: when I click on Groucho's link, I get a shit-ton of plain text.

I've seen people on other forums that are reporting the same problem. So it's not just you.

Works fine for me though.

Re: imdb.com down?

OK, thanks for that input, guys. I expect it'll be a temporary problem. It's not a tragedy, but I do visit the site quite regularly, and I wouldn't want to look at that crap forever.
And thanks to Groucho for his help.
