[offtopic] Cygwin.com / sources.redhat.com down?

If anybody else was wondering, I found the problem - there's a routing
issue in ip.att.net which is apparently preventing most if not all of
the entire Southeastern USA from accessing the network cygwin.com and
sources.redhat.com are on.

Anything from the local RoadRunner, xpedius in FL, Nuvox in SC, or
Telcove (formerly Adelphia) in SC is definitely affected; I've got
machines on all of the above pipes, and all of them show traceroutes
dying at gar1-p370.rlgnc.ip.att.net (  The one host I've
got in a New Jersey colo can connect without problems.

Thanks to Justin Banks for letting me know he was getting through okay,
so I knew what direction to look.
