I have an ear to whisper in on this topic at GD. 

If you're still having trouble through today, Thursday, please reply 
on this thread (or, if you're on [email protected], preferably over on that thread),
with what, when, and how, and I will pass the hard data along.

If you've already posted details here, just confirm still a problem, and
I can harvest.

The majority of the trouble is layer 3 and above, as I understand it; 
ping/trace to the relevant servers is working on, generally?  If otherwise,
mention that as well, pse.
