Clearly Dreamhost is having major issues right now (MySQL, WebMail, etc.). So why isn't http://status.dreamhost.com updated??? Isn't that the whole point of that site?

I remember when this site was created as a result of problems not being communicated to clients. I find it disappointing that Dreamhost still isn't doing a good job communicating problems. We've been through this already, guys. Let's get a "Communication Plan" in place so that when stuff like this happens (and it will again, that's life, oh well...) you can LET PEOPLE KNOW. This is how DH as a company can really distinguish themselves to be the great web host I know they are.
I'd like to know a few small pieces of information:
- what's wrong (okay if this is unknown, just a "something's wrong" is better than nothing!)
- how long until it's fixed (again, okay if unknown, but a "we're working on it and we'll get you going ASAP")
- what's affected (webmail, all websites, etc.)
