Yes, very strange things are afoot in the land of the internet today.
Akami, one of the largest 'edge content providers' seriously screwed up their DNS stuff today which caused outages for major sites like Yahoo and Google. This undoubetedly had a chain reaction and people scrambled to discover what the problem was and fix it.
As of 4:00pm this afternoon we've recieved no further reports of any trouble.
I'm going to chalk this one up to network issues beyond our control, because to the best of my understanding we've done nothing to fix the problem, and everything's working dandy.
I repeat: We have achieved normality. Anything you still can't cope with is, therefore, your own problem.
