Can you imagine, Google, along with other web sites, went black, for many Comcast users in the north east portion of the United States. A DNS server went offline for a "few hours" due to a hardware failure. A PC Advisor article writes;

The failure of a DNS (domain name system) server at Comcast caused problems for some web surfers in the north east section of the US yesterday, making several websites, including Google, inaccessible.

Google did help Comcast trouble shoot the issue, probably running traceroutes or something :).
