Not a good couple of days. Swansea (UK) was the scene of some interesting developments into the effect of a JCB (a digger for those who don't know) cutting fibre on the Internet.
Unfortunately, this had the effect of disconnecting Alan Cox's linux.org.uk and uk.linux.org DNS servers, which then meant that my arm.linux.org.uk and arm.uk.linux.org domains eventually became unresolvable.
It also had the unfortunate effect of decimating the University of Swansea's Internet connectivity, as well as their phone lines. I guess they were complaining more than anyone else.
Unresolvable domains means that the web site, ftp site, mailing lists are all unavailable, and I am unable to send or receive any mail. (Some people might think that this is a good thing.)
About 30 hours after the incident, the fibre has been repaired, and email is starting to move again. Hurray!
