"During this week, the US Postal Service is reminding people that the Web site, www.usps.com, is a great alternative to going to the physical post office." --news from Google

Oh, so that explains why I've been unable to get to the site for over 24 hours now?

Here's a tip... Don't promote what you can't serve. :-P

I just wanna track my Weird Al DVD.

interesting that they chose to advertise usps.com instead of usps.gov

It's the same site... I wonder why...

Yeah, I remember it used to be .gov long ago, but I guess they got .com too because people guessed that way first... so they've had both for years now. (Well, I'm taking your word for it that .gov still works, since neither work for me at the moment.)

the both point to the same page and I'm not having any problems right now... or before, for that matter.

Well then wtf? Why am I the only one who can't get it to load?

I can't even ping it, by name or by IP.

TraceRoute gets out of my local ISP but stops at alert.net, whatever that is...
