ICANN is a customer of Abovenet (apparently, they don't use
multi-homing). Abovenet had connectivity problems that week-end
(Core3.sjc2 rebooting) and that may explain the trouble.

May be ICANN should multi-home to avoid depending on one
provider. But, as someone said, www.icann.org is not critical for the
daily operation of the Internet.
