I must have hexed myself - just the other day I wrote that I never have problems loading the site. Then over the last couple of days, WUS would not load in any browser I tried, the site appeared to be down and out for the count.
I was down at a friend's house, about 25 miles away near Washington DC last night, he has fiber optic (FIOS) super-fast access. We tried it from his place and could not get WUS to load either. Finally, this morning it's working.
So, have there been any other problems, or is it some weird local access issue? I had no other problems with any of the other websites I visit.
P.S. Am I glad it's back, life is only half as fun without WUS! (Thanks Ernie and the crew!)
