Such a shock this morning to find that DNS couldn't resolve lxer.com. Glad you're back! Everything OK?

The data center that we use to house the LXer servers when down for one hour and 29 minutes today. In 15 years of experience with various data centers, I have never until now seen a data center wide outage of that length. Amazing.

Their main router lost BGP capability so our IP addresses were not advertised to the Internet.

They say that all is well that ends well, but I'm very unhappy over this.
