I am making this obvious now because...

I should correct this.  I haven't seen any official announcement
from CRL on either of these; the information I can see in public
from either side is a few postings recently from AGIS (Friday-ish)
making the claim that CRL disconnected, and a forwarded posting
that I reposted Thursdayish regarding a similar outage May 23rd,
which was origionally sent by a CRL customer and included a
discussion with a CRL admin and AGIS personel which indicated
that AGIS was only peering with CRL at CIX and that AGIS' CIX
router had gone down, causing the May 23rd outage.

I do not want anyone interpreting my repost of an old trouble
item as CRL blaming AGIS; I certainly don't speak for CRL,
I haven't worked for CRL for years, and disclaimer anything of
note that I post.  I was clear that I was reposting an old
trouble report (if recent) and speculating that it had
happened again.

Apparently still true, for whatever the reason is.
