A United Nations summit on the Internet suffered from a funny problem - there was no internet available!
The organizers of the summit, held at a luxury resort hotel on the Athenian Riveria not far from the city center, couldn't even provide a working Internet connection.
The wireless connection in the main conference hall appeared briefly before dying and leaving attendees bereft of the Net on Monday. Trying to connect to the base station yielded only a "could not connect to the network" error.
By Tuesday the organizers took the connection offline completely.
