Last night, 8:35 PM Sydney time, I was disconnected from BBO in the middle of the first hand in a tournament with predominantly Polish players.
I tried to login on two mobile devices and on the laptop with no success. Variety of errors, often "could not load critical file".
I was not able to access bridgebase.com, not able to see results of previous tournaments, not able to get to forums.
The problem persisted for at least 2 hours. I had no issues with any other internet site at that time.
No one else at that Polish BBO tournament was affected - there were no issues with accessing BBO from Poland.

What happened? Was it just me, the entire Sydney, the entire Australia?

Yes, I had the same problem and right now I am unable to login.
My message said something like "too many players or bad internet connection"
I'm not sure what is meant by 'bad internet connection'.
Sounds a little bit like seeing a sign saying "This area is predominantly used by English-speakers: press the green button if you would like the same information in Arabic - or the red button if you are red/green colour blind"

How can I reach the site to get the message if my internet is not working?

"too many players or bad internet connection" was showing too on some attempts. I was able to login in the morning, and able to access the forum.
Looks like connectivity between BBO and Australia, may be.
