Brief Downtime This Afternoon

You may have noticed that some perl.org services (including www.perl.org) were unavailable for a short time this afternoon.  For the past few days we've had issues in the middle of the night where one of our primary servers would grind to a halt.  We believe we've isolated that to a bad disk, and have replaced the disk.  We also took this opportunity to upgrade some of our networking hardware and reboot a variety of systems.  Everything should be back to normal now.

Network trouble

One of the primary network links to the main perl.org servers is having some trouble causing lots of packet loss and other such unpleasantries.  Our providers are looking into it and we expect all should be back to normal shortly.  (Famous last words?)
