Off-campus web sites not available Aug 7 2008

Update: August 7 16:00

The problems connecting to external web sites mentioned below
have been resolved.

A number of off-campus web sites are not reachable today
(eg. www.parl.gc.ca, www.canada.com, others.)
The problem does not seem to originate with either UBCNet or BCNet, however other BCNet sites are affected.
