It may not be related, but there have been several strange route
inconsistencies wondering around the network yesterday and today
affecting a variety of sites for a few hours at a time.  Even stranger
it seems to only be affecting routes in parts of the net, so the
site is sometimes reachable from one place but not another. One person
monitoring BGP picked up lots of inconsistent routes from his peers last
night, but they've cleared up now.  Either there is a odd bug in vendor's
routing software, a network engineer has goofed, or someone is playing
games.
