Well, we still don't have all our PVC's back.  We were back to the
point of having only one PVC down, when the entire MCI/Worldcom
frame-relay network collapsed again last night.  Supposedly its been
escalated to Bernie now.

MCI/Worldcom's frame-relay network continues to 'toggle' switches
throughout the network.  There was an OC12 outage in Riverdale causing
congestion.  Several cards no longer worked at all.  MCI/Worldcom
is working on reloading software on 54 switches.  Still no ETR.
