Running Reliable Grid Services?

Well, Since it was Friday Night, just before Xmas, I thought I'd do what ervery sad geek would do, and fire off a batch of grid jobs to last over the shutdown.

However, the voms servers at CERN had other plans:

Contacting [/DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=computers/] "dteam" Failed
Error: dteam: User unknown to this VO.
Trying next server for dteam.
Creating temporary proxy ...................................... Done
Contacting [/DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=computers/] "dteam" Failed
Error: Could not connect to socket. Connection refused
None of the contacted servers for dteam were capable of returning a valid AC for the user.

And I'm not the only one - This morning I saw GGUS tickets in from Atlas, CMS and LHCb with the same problem. Ho Hum. Merry festive season to you too.
