slidersv writes "Update: The site www.cisco.com seems to be back up, but definitely not all of it. Hopefully this one hour outing will not go unnoticed. That alone brings availability of Cisco's website for this year to three nines. Way below first High-Availability mark of 5 nines."

slidersv writes "With all its mighty power, network behemoth's main website www.cisco.com is down. No news describing the reason as of now. I have tried accessing the site for the past hour, since our operations heavily rely on Cisco online documentation, with no luck. After all the advocacy of high-availability, security and performance... Oh, the irony."
slidersv writes "What is beyond event horizon of the black hole you wonder? According to New Scientist article, it is possible to reconstruct the information beyond black hole's event horizon using Hawking radiation and a certain string theory. The principle is "similar to the way a laser creates a 3D hologram from the information contained on a 2D surface." This implies that the object that crossed the event horizon exists in two places simultaneously: inside the black hole, and in form of hawking radiation outside of it. This location uncertainty is not limited only to black holes and could be applied to any horizon, including determining what is beyond our cosmic horizon by decoding cosmic microwave background radiation. "This paradox will lead to a revolution as profound as the birth of quantum mechanics," says one of the scientists."
