Egypt Comes Back Online

After almost a week, the Egyptian internet has been turned back on. Some people have been able to get the message out all along, but this certainly makes it much easier for the less technically minded among them.

"After nearly a weeklong Internet blackout in Egypt amid anti-government protests, the Egyptian Web is back online this morning. Web monitoring firm Renesys reported via blog post that at about 11:29 a.m. Cairo time (4:29 a.m. EST) Egyptian ISPs returned to service, a report that has since been echoed by several other sources."
