Readers of various kernel-oriented mailing lists are wondering what to do with all their spare time today as a result of the failure of vger.kernel.org. We asked David Miller for an update, and got the following: "There was a hard disk failure yesterday on one of the raid arrays that
was bad enough to take the system down. The disk controller would
subsequently hang during reboot attempts with that failed disk attached.
Folks at the co-location facility are actively trying to bring it back
up and rebuild the array.
With luck the linux-kernel firehose will resume flowing soon.
Update: It looks like vger has come back up.
