Ok, any more down time? Mon Jul 26 15:39:43 MDT 1999 ATTRITION Staff Hopefull not. In the interest of full network disclosure or something neat sounding, let us tell you what happened. Early on, Attrition's upstream was Inficad. Inficad's primary route and upstream was Genuity. When we first received an IP from Inficad, it came from their pool and things were fine. One day we learned that Genuity thought they owned the IP but weren't using it. Since they were routing and broadcasting the current IP we were using, no big deal. Over the weekend, Genuity stopped broadcasting that IP and we went off into the virtual blackhole. A quick call and it came back up to last the rest of the weekend. Today, Inficad assigned us a new sexy IP number (188.8.131.52) which works fine. DNS is updated and things are working. If you have trouble reaching 'www.attrition.org', use the IP address or give it time for DNS to propogate. So, between the drives not mounting because of the errors, the old IP, and voodoo witchcraft all going away, hopefully we should be reachable for more service without a smile.
