All four, actually:


How could they all fail at once? I mean, this is why the slaves exist,
so they can respond if the master goes down. If they go down at the same
time, no goodness. php.net's four servers also failed me earlier today.
(I did "dig @theserver cvs.php.net" for each, none gave an answer.) Is
this just really weird luck? (Should I buy a lotto ticket?) Or are the
slaves in the same room as the master? Or are they misconfigured to be
more dependent on the master than they should be?

I could also offer backup DNS, if there's something wrong with these slaves.
