No daddy

I was in the fray when a few clients called me today to say "help, the website is down" - it seemed odd a few sites were down, others weren't. Of course trying to get to the websites that were experiencing problems, well i just got nuthin' - no error message back from the webserver or anything. Seemed odd. I saw the webserver instances were up so I added host headers for the IP quickly, just to see if i could get traffic routed there - and it worked - so i knew immediately it was a dns issue - and that's when i discovered go daddy was down for the count.
