RE: BBN (GTE) Suffers another major power problem.
I'll be more than happy to leverage my experience from my Nuclear Engineering days to help Internet companies plan for these redundant power plants. Each load of fuel would be good for about 18 to 24 months of sustained operation, and we could even design it so that should it experience an explosion, there is no confusion or expectation on the performance and viability of colocated and nearby equipment.

There is an extremely large generator at one of the affected facilities (read: cogeneration plant) but no amount of fuel helps if the plant is damaged in the explosion. /John p.s. No, we've have not deployed redundant power plants (yet)
