After reporting the incident Sunday:

Yahoo have said Monday, their e-mail and messenger systems were down
for hours during Sunday, due to a "power failure":

This comes just over a month after Yahoo suffered a similar outage on
their e-mail and messenger service, where Yahoo said the problem was
due to "software related issues":

2006 appears to be the year of the outage for Yahoo.
Consumers have been shuttered from their e-mail and messenger service
twice in less than two months for upto 10 hours a time.
I guess they ran out of diesel for their backup power supply that day
(smurk) at their server facilities. As for the "software related
issues" back in June, that is as lame an incident as the power failure
excuse.
Keep up the good (networking) work Yahoo, you make us proud and are
leading the way as a serious (chuckle) global competitor against
Google.
