Ok, maybe it's just a fleshwound after all. But i just got off the phone with my isp and it seems that a major Sprint backbone is down somewhere and there is a huge list of sites i cannot access. It's been this way for two days and it sucks (espescially when you have orders and email pending).

www.clarkson.edu
www.mvp.com
www.airborne.com

Those are the three pissing me off the most ... try them to see if you are also affected by the outage.

I suppose I should say, right now, I'm in New England and you guys are not ... that would most likely account for it.

If you want me to check your order status for you, e-mail me.

Even though I'm in New England, those sites are coming thru fine for me.
