They can't possibly all be down. But I can't get to any of them, or a number of other sites. CProgramming.com works fine, if a bit slower than usual. Dictionary.com works. A random bookmark to a site on the MIT website works.
Google does not load. Altavista does not. Yahoo does not. Acronymfinder.com does not. There are lots of examples.
What's up with this? I haven't been watching the news - is this something to do with the power outages? Or is something just really strange here?
