2009/03/22 - Scheduled Internet Outage
The University is currently without Internet access as a result of scheduled maintenance announced previously. The maintenance work is due to be completed by 17:00 today.

During the outage all users will be unable to browse the web or access other resources on the Internet. They will most likely experience this as an ERR_DNS_FAIL or ERR_CONNECT_FAIL error when trying to access affected web sites. E-mail that's sent or received during the outage will be queued, and will be delivered once Internet access restored.

This outage is a continuation of Eskom's electrical work at Grassridge (Coega) that started last Sunday. It should hopefully be the last Coega-related outage.
It appears that Internet access was restored about 10 minutes ago. However, since we're still within Neotel's scheduled maintenance window, you should expect further outages to occur without warning.
