Outage at Slashdot and Other OSDN Sites Gets Little Media Coverage

Apparently, Slashdot and a number of related sites have been down for much of the weekend due to a series of router-related problems. The most interesting aspect of the story is the lack of coverage it's gotten. The best article on the subject is on NewsForge, although it is dated Sunday and says that Slashdot is back on-line.

The article contradicts the current situation. Slashdot is currently displaying a notice that says it is down. Update: Slashdot says that it has been up all the time since Sunday and the problem is other people's DNS caching.
