When GitHub Goes Down

When GitHub Goes Down

As of 21 Oct, 2016 GitHub is down due to an intermittent DDoS attack against one of the biggest DNS services, DYN [1]. Fortunately Git is a distributed protocol and if you are a conscious developer you surely have alternative origins to push your code and/or to populate deployment. If this is not your case or you really need to access GitHub for whatever reason, add this set of IP addresses and their associative domain names to your /etc/hosts file.
