Somehow, the domain names *.r-project.org could not be resolved.
This means, not only all the web sites were unreachable, but
also the ftp-server, and my message to r-help didn't get
through. By the time my message was delivered, the web sites
were also available.

It was only for an hour or so. Not like a few weeks back, when
non of the r-project.org sites were available for days, just at
the time I wanted to install R on a new machine.
