Re: the whole world disappeared?
> All AT&T InterSpan North American frame services are down. Our 200 > site WAN just went dark. No ETA for repair. I'm starting to feel jinxed. Two months ago Worldcom was in the office explaining how wonderful their network was, a few days later they lost most of their west coast connectivity. Last month SPRINT was in the office explaining how wonderful their network was, that weekend the Sprint network suffers software upgrade meltdown. This afternoon AT&T was in the office explaining how wonderful their network was, and tonight the AT&T network falls over. I think the only thing saving MCI is their salesperson hasn't been able to tell me how wonderful their network is. Anyone else care to try their luck and schedule an appointment to tell me how wonderfull their network is :-) To keep Randy from yelling at me, I am working on a protocol for reporting alerting users to network and other failures. I've decided no one will implement management guidelines, so lets write some software. And someday you may even be able to configure your Cisco, Ascend, etc to grok the protocol. I think it would be a cool addition to lucky IOS release 13. -- Sean Donelan, Data Research Associates, Inc, St. Louis, MO Affiliation given for identification not representation
