Hello,

A "worm" caused many parts of the Internet backbone to experience VERY severe latency. We were off line for about 4 hours along with numerous other sites. I was working on the site when it happened and can tell from our posts and the DI ticket when their network and our site went back on line.

A moment in history for my tired eyes.

Please see the following for the explanation in more detail:
