ive never come across bbc.co.uk/?ok as well. guessing its just checking your ip to determine whether you are in the uk or not but it is weird.

its a shame cos i usually waste hours watching the first 5 mins of every show on iplayer then getting bored then watching the next.

matt --- your inbox is full.

i did google google just before this happened. could that be the fault?

I have the BBC as my homepage. Does this mean when I switch my computer off tonight, and on again in the morning and if the BBC is still broken, I won't be able to open a window for the interweb thingy?
And you will all be lost in cyberspace?

Yes, and yes :thumbsup: There was a cool article I read today about Lebowski. Unfortunately it was on, err, the bbc website :giggle:

Burn after Reading looks like a quite unusual film and quite interesting. Brad Pitt looks quite funny in it.

Might have to watch Fight Club again tonight.

planning to catch this 'spy movie' with Malkovich + Clooney, hope it lives up to my expectations! love the Coen brothers since Fargo, and McDormand is in it as well lol. I like Brad Pitt of course, Fight Club was good. Apparently expect a lot of percussions and the usual quirky touches.

bbc website seems to be working BUT as i guessed, with the new look.
