Am smack in the middle of a quick project to migrate a new laptop to Ubuntu so outage really screws up my day.

I've tried it from several clients with various browsers, but the hitch is they are all behind the same firewall with the same ISP.

Can anyone confirm that they can get to any directory/file other than a redirect back to the home page?

Yep, a lot of pages redirect to the homepage..

Not all of them though, for example the only news-article that does work is this one:
http://www.ubuntu.com/news/ubuntu-7.04-end-of-life

edit:
some pages that gave me redirects (for example: http://www.ubuntu.com/news/ubuntu-8.10-server) are working okay now...

Thanks. I just confirmed they are crippled, but coming back up. Wonder what happened...

Probably preparing to 'crash-in-burn' in 2 more days.
