Anyone know where Brooks Brothers is in Beijing?

… because I just ruined a nice set of blue Brooks Brothers boxer shorts when our Olympic blogging site went dark for 30 minutes. Story of my life — when the website absolutely positively cannot go down — it will go down. Without fail. Forbes.com alumni will recall the September 1999 disaster when we lost the site for three days during the publication of the annual list of the 400 richest Americans. That was 72 hours of badness.

This one was particularly hairy because the site is our default in our iLounges — internet cafes for athletes and their guests in the Olympic Village. Press is all over it. This site CANNOT fail.
