Another major outage this evening:
Widespread Comcast outage, and how to route around it
Posted: Dec 5, 2010 at 11:20 PM
Comcast has suffered an outage, reports Chicago Breaking News, which extends to Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Minnesota. The troubles started at about 8:30 p.m. Eastern time, and are related to the Comcast domain name system (DNS) servers.
This is not the first Comcast outage related to name server issues, reports Engadget, which points to an earlier set of name server outages on the East Coast that affected network users in late November. Similar issues occured in 2005, reported CNET at the time.
Service just came back on completely around 1:15AM. I was off since about 9PM. Freaked me out, what with all the Wikileaks stuff going down.edit on 12/6/2010 by this_is_who_we_are because: last two sentences
