An update to my post below about Global Internet being down all weekend.
Found this thread from last summer. Looks like Global used to be KYI, Inc, located in Kentucky. Was bought out by Global? Read thread. Anyway, looks like back last summer KYI was floundering and rumored to have gone under. Maybe they grew too big too fast.
So I guess we’re not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy?
The only reason I found this at all was because I did a WHOIS on Gloint and found its registered e-mail contact was moc.tenretniymtognull@retsambew. Which is an e-mail address that appears on several spammer lists. (Google it and you’ll see what I mean.)
