Has been since last night – I can’t get any emails. You can read more about the massive blackout here. I’ve been amazed as I’ve tried to get from site to site over the past 24 hours. Many that opened with no problem just a day ago are sealed tight. Sometimes there seems to be zero rhyme or reason (make that always). Part two of the WaPo’s sensational report on Cheney is inacessible, while the first and third parts open just fine. Tried different proxies, no luck. If I don’t respond to your emails, you know why.
UPDATE: Yahoo is back on as of 11:06 a.m., Beijing time. – Jeremiah
From Richard: Thanks, Jeremiah. The Nanny has seemed particularly excitable lately. And so fickle.
