Anonymous' 'Operation Blackout' Goes Dark; DNS Just Fine

Anonymous, where art thou? Looks like Anonymous was a no-show at their own party to shut down the Internet today. The temporary shutdown was supposed to be midday and the time has passed in the Western Hemisphere without incident. Trial run, or inability to deliver?

The alleged plan by Anonymous members was to exploit a known vulnerability in DNS servers through the use of an attack utility known as "Ramp," or "reflective amplification."
