Sans:

several readers wrote in to note that the .de domain (germany), which is operated by denic [1], had an unplanned outage earlier that lasted a bit over an hour.
There is no official statement yet, but according to one source [2], a bad zone file was loaded and it took a while to fix.

Currently, .de domains appear to be reachable again.
