I posted last night about a network problem with Sprint; and there are some residual problems today but they are unrelated to that problem. A couple of days ago someone hacked AOL's Internic password and changed updated their records to point to DNS servers that weren't AOL. This was apparently straightened out but it is said to have caused some internal problems in AOL's network. Presently, Sprint is isolated from two of AOL's networks and they are down on AOL's end. Those being down of coarse are causing much congestion on remaining links. This is also causing problems for Compuserve and it's my understanding that ICQ is related. So these problems are outside of here; and there isn't much we can do except for to wait for AOL to resolve thier own internal problems. I've received several other reports but they have resolved to be DNS problems at the destination site.
