Yeah, it's strange.  At times it seems to work fine but at
other times it stops working for awhile.  Maybe they were
going through some sort of a "maintenance downtime" or
something - but that does not explain how the yum hang
remained - holding the connection "hostage" - that is the
part I cannot fathom....

As a previous poster explained - it's probably a router
issue...  in any case - I have blacklisted this site and all
is good - so far...
