Get to know D.C. with our daily newsletter

We dive deep on the day’s biggest story and share links to everything you need to know.

I’ve been trying to log on to various dc.gov Web sites since yesterday evening, both at home and here at the office, and I haven’t been able to get through. The Council’s Web site, dccouncil.us, also seems to be out of service.

I called the mayor’s press office, and they said their computers were working fine and that they haven’t fielded any complaints about the Web sites being out, so I thought it might just be some bad luck with my ‘Net connection. I did an informal poll of folks outside the office, though, and three of four couldn’t log on, either.

Anyone want to try clicking through those links and report in?
