Looks like the news server froze up with a 'swapper' kernel panic sometime
this early afternoon.  Rebooting it now, but as the disks will go through a
ubclean-boot disk scan, it'll be a few hours before it's back up and
connecting.  3-4 hours if auto scans go well, longer if a manual restart is
needed as well.
