EBSCO and TDNet--crash and burn

The world of database access is crashing in around us in this first week of classes. Two major sources of information are down.

Actually EBSCO is occasionally available -- if you wait long enough and it doesn't time out at 2 minutes. It has about 15 major databases which contain thousands of journal articles. And not all libraries or locations are affected, which makes it even more frustrating, because the company is less likely to worry about fixing it if it only our little "problem." GGGGRRRR.

TDNet is the company/server that holds the list of journals(Our Journal List) we subscribe to in full text, and where to find them. ALERT, ALERT, ALERT: It's now up and running
