	My scripts, which were working last night are now failing with a time-out message as follows:

------------- EXCEPTION: Bio::Root::Exception -------------
MSG: Response Error

STACK: Main_Check_Create.pl:135

When I try to ping eutils.wip.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov all the packets are lost, no returns whatsoever.

Can anyone else reproduce this?  I can not tell if it is something local with me or something happening on the NCBI side of things.
