Sadly, Telus' homepage doesn't seem to have a DSL outtage (or any system status) section unlike my dial-up provider. It makes things a lot harder to pinpoint problems if you don't even know if the problem is on your side or theirs. *grumble*

Presumably we'll be back to new releases after the 19th. (Hopefully).
Edit: Never mind. Decided to try reconnecting one last time before shutting down and completely tearing things apart and it worked?!?! I won't ask.
