Weren't they changed to decrement once, appearing as one instead of two routers? (For those who don't remember the NSFNET "routers" they consisted of an IBM RS6000 attached to each of several T1/T3 interfaces, interconnected across a FDDI with a route server. Nine RS6000s in all. 200 amp service required. :-) This is no reason to raise a harmful alarm. --Kent
