Default Dish Network down...?

It is 1:19AM Pacific. Dish has been out for about 30 mins? around there. Anyone else having this issue?

At one point Dish, phone and interwebbzz were out for a few mins (all on different carriers).....technology kicked it's own ***

isn't dish network supposed to be down for about 6 hours 2 times during the year? Has something to do with its orbit through a particular region of the sun.

found this;

There are also natural conditions that occur twice a year that you should be aware of. The sun moves to a position behind the Dish Network satellite as it orbits the Earth. The exact time of the year that this occurs varies, depending on the location, but it is near the beginning of spring and again near the beginning of autumn. The period of solar interference lasts for a few minutes at about the same time everyday for a few days during the spring and autumn, so do not be alarmed when it happens.

This is an unavoidable natural event for all television involving the use of satellites and has an adverse effect on many program providers. During this period, you will not be able to see programs on Dish Network, but don’t panic if this happens. Once the sun has moved from behind the satellite, the programs will reappear and you will be able to enjoy your programs once again.
EDIT: 1:49AM Pacific; it's back on. I'm checking out, night.
