The recent computer upgrade mentioned by Paul the other day probably explains it!

The AMSAT.ORG computer has been upgraded and moved to a new location (still on 
the UCSD campus). The new location required that a new IP address be assigned. 
The transition should theoretically be seamless, but some users may have 
trouble until their network's DNS servers take notice of the update.

Unless your network admin has done something unusual, any problems should clear 
up by themselves within a few days at most.

Please report any ongoing problems to me (kb5mu at amsat.org or paul at mustbeart.com 
if the problem prevents email from getting through to amsat.org).
