I have setup a test domain and catalog which connects to the live IC
server.  On this test site I have a page containing: "CGI UP".  When my
script notices that the main site is not responding it will then try to
hit the test site using the tlink cgi and will check for the result of
"CGI UP".  This will tell us whether or not IC can be accessed via the
CGI method when it cannot be access via mod_interchange.

Our site was brought down for a 2nd time this morning by another worm
trying to access exploits in awstats and xml-rpc.
