by teddkg / October 16, 2007 12:12 PM PDT

From about 6:00 - 7:00PM Pacific Time (approximately) I couldn't reach or or bol, or download most CNET podcasts. That was strange! I jaikued about it and others around the world were experiencing the same thing I was. Anyone know what happened? Glad to see it back!

I couldn't find a single CNET Networks site that was up during that time. At first I just thought my tubes had been clogged, but when this forum, the BOL blog,, AND failed to load, I knew something was up.
