I have just received the following email from the host server, in regard to the outage that caused the chat room to be down all day, yesterday:
Sunday Jan 23, 2012 outage was caused by 3rd party company - FiberLight.com - who owns and manages the internet fiber here in Florida, Texas, Georgia and many other states in the United States.
Jan 23, 2012 - Fiber Light implemented a unannounced maintenance updating the Internet Fiber here in Florida which affected everybody in South Florida who accesses FiberLight fiber highway which is pretty much about 30-40% of South Florida.
This unannounced maintenance not only affected us (OccHosting) but many many other web hosting companies, commercial business, banks and private individuals who have website or mail servers here in Florida.
We are waiting for a more official response from Cogent and Fiber Light which I will pass on to you once I receive it.
