E-Mail at The Washington Post Disrupted by a Missed Payment

E-Mail at The Washington Post Disrupted by a Missed Payment: "Sometimes it doesn't take a hacker to bring down a computer network.
The Washington Post said yesterday that it had inadvertently allowed the registration for one of its Internet domain names - washpost.com - to expire. That lapse had the immediate effect of shutting down the e-mail system that reporters and other Post employees use to exchange messages with the world, something they were unable to do for much of the day."
