HTTP both www.qwest.com and www.centurylink.com have been in and out since
December 27.  Sometimes it responds in less than 10 seconds, other times it
connects and there's no TCP response for minutes.  This was tested from two
different networks.

If anyone from CenturyLink is lurking, could you please notify your NOC or
IT department?

AAAA and IPv6 access to www.centurylink.com were restored around 11:30 am
U.S. Central.

Well, sometime yesterday www.centurylink.com removed it AAAA record(s).

www.qwest.com still has them.

Good news: access to the v6 version of www.qwest.com came up at 12:30 pm
today -- it redirects to www.centurylink.com, but at least it's working.

Only www.savvis.com remains in my list of service provider websites that
have non-working IPv6.

The IPv6 version of www.qwest.com has been down for 10 days.  Wget shows a
301 to www.centurylink.com, but that also fails.  Emails to the nocs at both
companies have gone unanswered.  Unless HE is deployed in a web browser,
this behavior leads to a bad end-user experience.

If anyone can prod either of these two companies that would be much
appreciated.
