Earthlink is down?

(On Earth Day, Ironic?)

We have been getting a few reports recently of Earthlink (the ISP) having DNS problems and otherwise being "down".  We haven't been given much information at this time, however, since we can't even reach Earthlink's website, and "Downforeveryoneorjustme.com" is even reporting it's down, it appears as if they are definately having some problems.

fyi, downforeveryoneorjustme.com also says amazon.com is down. Not sure what they're checking, but it's not very reliable apparently.

Yep, reports amazon.com and target.com are down for me. Not too reliable as I can reach both sites. But Earthlink is inaccessible to me. A purported ISP representative is blaming a Telstra backhaul issue and emergency server relocation for the problem (see Andrew Mouawad's post) http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies-archive.cfm/187311.html.
