IMHO "fixing" whitehouse.gov scales much better than "fixing" *.mil in a
number of interesting ways.

I'm personally more pleased with the network operators that dealt with the
problem. Thanks, Guys! I'm not exactly sure what the White House did.
The above web page also confirms that http://*.mil:80 is currently
unavailable. I guess the military should contact the White House to see
how to go about fixing the problem.
