08004u plagued by yet more woes

Users get redirected to other sites

There's yet more shenanigans at 08004u -- the flat fee freephone ISP -- The Register can report. After going belly up less than 24 hours after launching the service, some people trying to access the site have been directed to the personal ICQ homepage of a 16-year-old schoolboy. "The visitor counter raced up to 50 in ten seconds," reported one Vulture Central reader, but that's still far short of 08004u's claim that it site was being bombarded with 37,000 "hits" a second. Today, 08004u is directing punters to a Microsoft Personal Web Server 4.0 page. Happy days... ®
