I assumed this was  the Cogent/Telia spat, but I can't get to it from  
4 different providers in the US, none tracerouting through Cogent.

nmap says nothing in its /25 is reachable, though I do start to see  
machines on its /24.

So, problem at the ISP, probably.

Unfortunately, the yum skip-broken plugin seems to not deal with the  
case of a baseurl being unreachable.  It's possible that's a feature,  
I haven't decided yet.
