GoDaddy DNS Down - Half the Internet Offline

As of 2:30 PM EST on September 10, 2012 Godaddy's DNS services are still offline. All domains (and therefore websites) that depend on GoDaddy's DNS services (even if the actual website is hosted elsewehre) are currently un-resolvable and pretty much offline.

It's currently unknown what is happening, I'm thinking technical issues or massive attack.

To add insult to injury, many of the "site down" monitoring websites that rely on Godaddy DNS are unreachable too. Go Figure!

MySQL Server on Ubuntu Linux Server

I've been using Ubuntu Linux server since version 8.04 LTS.  On this server I ran several hundred websites with MySQL databases.  The server was a virtual machine and it ran well.  One day I upgrade this (supposedly) perfect server to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, oh what a bad move that was.
