Is the Vanguard website down?

It's 11/11/05 at 6:50pm EST and when I go to www.vanguard.com I get "can't find server"

Is that possible?

It's 10:00 pm. Do you know where your money is?



Why are you checking mutual fund quotes on a Friday night?

Vanguard website down? Can you imagine? It would be like a civil war battle reenactment... thousands driving to Valley Forge!

Re: Is the Vanguard website down?

For some reason I could go to every website, even the ones not cached, except the vanguard one.* I could even post here and see new posts, so that told me inflow and outflow was working.* It was the strangest thing and it never happened before.* After I power-cycled my modem and router I could get in to the vanguard website again. Problem solved.
