Everyone,

We do have an issue at the TorIX.

We have isolated it to a hardware bug impacting our networking and
we're working to get it fixed ASAP. It's not likely to be entirely
fixed prior to the end of the Winter Olympics. We have a workaround
that should allow us to serve more traffic locally again. Apologies.

Best,

-M< (20940)
