It's been down at least since early yesterday.  There's been only limited
comment from Exodus/Andover:

"According to Exodus' trouble ticket it is a BGP instability between
several locations in their network and with BGP customers.

Whether it was a security issue, vendor bug or operator error hasn't
been determined yet.  Exodus customers should contact Exodus customer
service for more information, reporters should contact Exodus media
relations for more information."

I figure that Exodus/Andover/VA Linux might have simply run out of money,
especially given VA's woes in that regard lately.

It looks intriguing, unusual and different but no one will come within 20
feet of it." -- Sun help document
