I agree that we should use restraint with posts like "my line is 
up" and "my line is down". This however, IS the place to discuss routers and 
switches and software pertinant to our everyday practices.
Don't get me wrong, I still love to find out that a provider of mine is 
having trouble on the west coast long before their call center has gotten 
word of it.
