I think it lasted about 20 minutes. I believe it was an upstream problem (though this is not confirmed at the moment, and boy, won't I be embarrassed if it turns out to be my router crashing.) This upstream was pretty good for the first year or so, but they've been getting less reliable. I guess we need to quit talking about it and build our own BGP router and get a secondary upstream.
I've been holding back on this project just 'cause nick and I don't have a lot of experience running BGP; we're announcing some swamp one of our customers has as a start, but even that hasn't been without hiccups. Generally speaking, I would think that leaving it to my upstream would result in a more reliable system, but of late, that hasn't been the case, so I suppose we need to roll our BGP systems in to production.
edit: here is what our upstream had to say:

There was an emergency maint that was done on the BACKBONE fiber going to SJ DC. Everything is done and back up normal now.
they've been blaming most of the recent outages on XO, who apparently provides them point to point links to whoever they actually buy bandwidth from.
I need to find out who can get me transit at SVTIX without going through those (apparently fragile) XO lines.
