The internet has been stolen


mayfair.jpgWell, it has if you’re lucky enough to live in Mayfair, London, anyway. A gang of thieves broke into a BT exchange and legged it with servers, routers and all sorts of other crucial hardware – leaving the local population without their Facebook fix for the evening.

The thieves are thought to have used a nearby paparazzi scrum as cover, as Guy Ritchie’s 40th birthday party was going on in a pub nearby. Around 8-9pm they broke in and proceeded to strip the shelves of anything of value – network cards, servers, and modems.

BT are still working at getting everything back online, but for the time being, the rich will have to live without knowing whether they’re about to be “dipped” or not.
