MSN Search is Down

    Tried doing a search in MSN and got the following:

    This service is currently unavailable

    Our team is working to restore service as quickly as possible.
    Please try your request again later.

    Anyone know how long it's been down?

    I use MSN search all the time now because it has the best results, but it's not down for me.

    That happens with MSN every now and again. It happened to me at the beginging of the week.

    Actually, the other day their home page wasn't working at all.

    MSN is just way fun to deal with.

    Happened to me last night as well. Maybe they're doing some sort of maintenance or something.

    Good guess. I doubt there are too many other reasons that they would be down.

    MSN just has issues at random times. I doubt they would be doing maintenance in the middle of the day when I've run into the problems. And we wonder why they are fizzling out. ;)

    Been experiencing downtime with MSN frequently the past few days. It always says Server not found.
