It's been 8 days so far... hopefully it will we back to normal soon.
I'm not sure how long GPO has been serving PURLs, but if we assume
this is the first failure in 10 years, then that's still 99.8% uptime,
which isn't bad. If the 0.2% were spread evenly across ten years, it
would hardly be noticable, but when it happens all at once, it
certainly does seem worse.
