‘Analyse This’ outage due to vandals in California

The new e-newsletter from Mourne Training Services was subject to an outage for most of Thursday 9th April. The reason for this disruption was an act of vandalism on the internet and phone network in Silicon Valley, California. In an apparently well organised attack, fibre optic cables were severed in four different locations bringing chaos to tens of thousands of people living and working in the area. Unfortunately the effects were also felt on this side of the Atlantic since email marketing campaigns hosted by the company Vertical Response were affected. Please accept my apologies if you tried to access Analyse This on Thursday and could not open the links in the message. Please do try again (you can click here to view the e-newsletter). This was an exceptional outage which, unluckily for MTS, coincided with the launch of Analyse This.
