    No.
    Issues like this are usually short lived. And strangely they do seem to happen at weekends.

    i agree..

    my _theory_ for the explaination is that while mirrorbrain
    <http://www.mirrorbrain.org/> is a wonderful piece of magic, it can't
    cope with all the (for example) universities or gov sites around the
    earth that go off line for some minutes/hours during the weekend for
    'routine maintenance' [while the kids are getting sloshed and the
    bureaucrats are collecting bribes]...

    i mean like: mirrorbrain might pick and provide a route/target for
    etech97 on saturday that was *wonderful* on friday, but Kaka this minute..

    and, s/he gets zero happiness--with no apparent reason as to exactly why..

    what think?
