Welp, that was definitely the weirdest outage that we've ever had. The DNS configuration that we've been running for the listserv machine ever since I took over decided it was going to stop working, and it took me quite a while to figure out what the problem was. I apologize for the downtime, but everything should be working "normally" again. (Knock on wood!)
Okay, I lied. The server will be upgraded tomorrow due to some unforseen hardware complications.. It should be up until around 10AM EST tomorrow, and after that I'll let you konw when it is back online.
