Oh well, now at least I don't have to wonder why I can't access one of my sites, as well as WebHostingTalk Smile.

This morning, I woke up, and saw a couple of emails saying my sites were down. I checked, and only one of them was. Then I tried WHT to see if anyone else was having problems with my host (since their forums are down too), and I couldn't access WHT!

Then I decided to take a look at "The Internet Health Report", and it really sums it all up!
