YPN is lucky that the other two days performances were as good as they were, because the initial days weren't overly impressive, and today would have made me jump ship.
Luz hope this picks back up.(Heh, and I'm usually the first to get annoyed when someone in the AdSense forum complains aout ONE bad day)

As previously indicated, we regret that we're unable to provide you with a timeframe for the resolution of the blank ad block issue through the Yahoo! Publisher Network. However, we sincerely appreciate your patience during this process. If your overall number of Web pages prohibits you from reinstalling the ad code on every page, you may wish to reinstall the code one a few of your pages to see what difference it makes with this issue. Please allow 24-48 hours for the relevant ads to being appearing on those pages.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of any further assistance.
Yahoo! Publisher Network
Maybe some of you are having the same problem.
I wanted to let you know that we have confirmed that certain ISPs have been intermittently unable to access the domain that serves Yahoo! ads on your site. We are currently working with the affected ISPs to fix this problem. Feel free to contact customer support if you are experiencing this issue.
We expect to resolve the issue shortly and appreciate your patience.
Try pinging 184.108.40.206 , That is the IP address of YPN's server. If that works then try pinging ypn-js.overture.com , If that doesn't work for you, then that pretty much confirms it is a DNS issue.
You can look up the IP of ypn-js.overture.com from Sprint's looking glass server:
It seems the support folks are barely aware of this issue and it seems to be no big deal to them.
Anyone know if we are missing 5%, 10%, 50% of visitors?
It's one thing if the ads don't show but another when the whole page won't load (except for the header).
Maybe they should think about creating a forums area on their YPN website so people can inform them of problems, and even suggest fixes.
When I tryed emailing them via their help page, I was emailed a message saying they were "aware of the problem, and working with my ISP to fix the problem". Well I am my ISP, and they never called/emailed us once.
Anyway I thought I would just vent for a while, thanks for listening :)
