This morning (shortly after 9am UTC, 5am EDT), Cogent experienced an outage resulting in many sites being not reachable. Things are slowly coming back together. Some sites may still not yet be reachable.

Keynote shows issues between Cogent and almost all of its peers, as well as some isolated issued with Savvis.  See

Would be a good idea to check any PostgreSQL installations (full, embedded, and drivers).

The following new versions are available:
7.3.15, 7.4.13, 8.0.8, 8.1.4

Updated drivers for ODBC, Ruby, Perl, .Net, and C++ will be released shortly.

I'll update the diary with info on any good tools to test installations for this issue.
