Meltdown somewhere?

Is there some sort of a router meltdown somewhere this evening? I cant get
through to most
destinations, either with TELNET, http, ftp, DNS - nothing.

According to Illuminet the Texas/Oklahoma region is affected by an unknown
outage at this time.


Probably. I'd be hard pressed to believe the Internet survived an
entire evening without anything anywhere breaking.


And yet, unfortunately for us all, your mail continues to work.
