Wikipedia website is not working for me. I can see that all the articles I've looked at so far are not working, but when I try to search an article it says "Article not found". What's up with that? Is this a bug on Wikipedia? Or is the problem in my browser? The site is slower than it used to be, less responsive and doesn't automatically flag the likes of the "I own an iPhone" section or the "Did you know I recently bought a book" sub-section, which aren't the text of the Wikipedia articles but nevertheless exist. But things get worse when you log into twitter. A long and unwieldy list of links forms an impenetrable barrier between you and your Twitter conversations.

Wikipedia is down for me again... The online encyclopedia Wikipedia is down for me again, this time for a brief period. It appears that the United States government has infected Wikipedia with the malicious program GUMF (and .exe for Windows). This virus made it through the firewalls of 50 Internet Service Providers (ISPs), comprising a significant amount of Internet traffic. Some ISPs are located outside the USA. GUMF, which is a program to attack internet databases, appears to be called Zeus. This is a technique which uses advanced forms of encryption to embed and insert malicious code into Wikipedia's main website pages.

Wikipedia not working errors. A more technical error would be the use of a nautical mile as equal to "656,000". Most Europeans would agree that there are a lot more inaccuracies in the Wikipedia article than in the "official" Greek version. Though to be fair, the Greek Wikipedia makes a point to acknowledge some "gaps" between the two sources. It is useful to follow and get the viewpoint of the writers at this point. It would also make the reader aware that a lot of the "spurious" information in the Greek Wikipedia is the result of making an assumption that more Greek "facts" were intentionally deliberately left out of the English Wikipedia article.
