[Off Topic] Web host is down

For my colleagues and friend who visit my websites (www.bucketofbits.com, www.tyleris.com, www.timmitchell.net), I just discovered that my web host has gone offline.  In truth, it appears that they have gone completely belly-up – their own corporate website is down, and the sales and support phone numbers indicate that they are disconnected.

If anyone has any news about Sectorlink (www.sectorlink.com) and their future plans if any, let me know.  In the meantime I could use some suggestions for a new multi-domain web host.

Update - all is well.  Local news reports flooding in the area, and some Sectorlink employees were responding to queries on web hosting forum sites.  It's a little unsettling that the phone numbers indicated that they were disconnected.

Tim, happened across this: www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php - same guys?

Same guys.  I haven't thoroughly tested everything, but it looks like all sites are back up and running.  Glad I'm not selling anything online - this would have been the worst day of the year for an e-commerce site to be offline.
