How long has .mac been down?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I'm assuming it is down. I haven't been able to access the .mac site all this evening. iChat video and audio isn't working and I can't upload my iWeb sites. System prefs won't show iDisk usage either. I can access my iDisk through the finder though. Anyone experiencing similar?

    Hasn't been down at all for me, and the status says all working.

    Strange. I still can't log into .Mac and haven't been able to for hours. I just get a 'server stopped responding' message. Have tried it on a few different machines with no success. I've had no problems logging onto any other sites.

    If I go to system prefs>.Mac>idisk I just get the message "There's a problem connecting to the iDisk server at this time. Please try again later". I'll see if it's cleared by the morning.

    Just in case it can help anyone else: I solved the problem by upgrading the firmware in my Netgear DG834G router and flushing the DNS cache. Had the same problem again after a week and just flushing the DNS cache has sorted things out.

    I've never had this problem with my Linksys router.
