Internet oddity - any ideas?

Last night and this morning internet browsing via ntlworld and demon to Google and LiveJournal has been fine, as have most .co.uk websites. But .com websites, including Amazon, Abebooks, Yahoo and various others were offline (page not found) for over 12 hours. On my Blackberry the .com websites were fine all along.

Can anyone tell me why this situation arose - was it a particular server or line down for some reason? And is there a site that tracks this kind of availability in real time where we could check whether it was just us?

Answers in human language gratefully received....

When Anticipation had problems recently, http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ got recommendations.

I haven't tried it myself.

Thanks Tim. I've checked it out and it will be useful in future.

Cheers.
