Ever get frustrated when a website you want to access seems to be down? Sometimes it can be tricky to tell if it's a problem with the website itself, or with your connection.
So, for this Friday's super-short tip, we reveal a really simple way to check if the problem's at your end or theirs.
All you need to do is visit the straightforwardly-named downforeveryoneorjustme.com.
Pop the address of the website into the box and it'll tell you whether the website is down for everyone or just for you.
Alternatively, if you use Google Chrome, take the time to read the 'page not found' message properly. The latest version tells you if other Chrome users are having trouble reaching the site too.
