Some networks will be down on Jan 1
A person forwarded me this information. Whether Y2K affects anything, sites plan to shutdown over New Year's. In case you get trouble calls, you won't be able to send e-mail to places like Cornell. http://www.cit.cornell.edu/y2k/y2kdown.html Fortunately they are leaving the phone switch up, assuming you got their phone number ahead of time. Why do I get this sinking feeling there will be a lot of confusion over what is up, what is down, what is supposed to be down, and what is supposed to be up. And contacting their upstream usually isn't much help. The last time Tufts and Boston were down, their upstream didn't respond for over 24 hours. And then only to say, everything looked ok to them a day later.
