Gaps today due to DNS attack

The well publicized DDoS DNS attack today caused gaps in EveKit synchronization and market data coverage.  The first attack started approximately 11:00 UTC and ended just after 13:00 UTC.  A second prolonged attack started just before 17:00 UTC and ended around 21:00 UTC.  During these attacks many account sync requests failed due to the inability to resolve the location of some EVE services.  You'll see these outages in your sync history as red blocks, e.g.

Market data downloads were also affected.  During the attacks, book data was not able to update and will show the state of the book just before the attack began.  Market history (daily summaries) should not be affected.
