Apparently both festool.com and festoolusa.com are not responsive at the moment.

The same network issue that took out large parts of Facebook also took out other sites or at least the connectivity to them. I know it was miserable working remotely today to East coast data centers. It'll clear up.

Yes, the Festool websites have been down sporadically since last night. My colleagues in HQ are working on it now to get things restored ASAP.

Yup,  any time a chunk of the internet goes down for a while it gives me hope that folks might figure out that everything shouldn't be internet.
