Level 3: Don't Blame Us

4:45 PM -- I tried paying for the new Radiohead album. I really did.

I wasn't one of those that pre-ordered. Which meant that when I tried to connect to Radiohead's In Rainbows site I was met with server timeouts just like everyone else.

So when I first heard that Level 3 was running the content delivery for Radiohead, I was a bit surprised. After all the time and effort the company had spent telling me how great its CDN was, it failed me the one time I wanted to download something it was delivering?

Luckily, I found out that wasn't the case, and that Level 3 had nothing to do with the Website problems.
