Indeed it was, thought it moved.

we wouldnt do that without telling you, we will also keep this site up during the changeover period. I have just got up this morning so not sure what happened. I will ask Mary to check the tech logs etc to see what went on. My guess is we got visited by Harry Hacker

Meanwhile in Tripoli, things are getting ugly. Seems like Ghaddafi's last stand.

latest on the wires, a compete turnaround after dismissing NATO action yesterday -

BUDAPEST Feb 25 (Reuters) - NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he had called an emergency NATO council meeting for Friday afternoon to discuss the situation in Libya.

"I have convened an emergency meeting in the NATO council this afternoon to consult on this fast-moving situation. So I will return to Brussels in a few hours," he told Reuters during a visit to Budapest on Friday.

"Before I do so, I will meet with EU defence ministers and discuss with them how we in a pragmatic way can help those in need and limit the consequences of these events."

He said priority must be given to evacuation and possibly humanitarian assistance.

"It's a bit premature to go into specifics but it's well-known that NATO has assets that can be used in a situation like this and NATO can act as an enabler and coordinator if and when individual member states want to take action," he said.

they are trying to get together a large coordinated multi-nation op, which makes sense logistically as multiple nationalities are holed up together. You dont want 15 rescue squads all turning up at the same oilfield at the same time Smile

Speculators started the rumour about #Gaddafi's death so they could profit on the oil price. Parasites trading on the #revolution #libya

I agree with this: otherwise we would have picked up such a rumor here.

I have a lot of sources feeding in to me, not just the wires, but MSN, Yahoo Messenger, email etc and not one of my sources had that rumour apart from what was floating around Twitter
