We disconnected the Cornell campus but kept our DMZ net connected, so we could get and send mail and news in a contained environment.

I recall after the Morris worm hit the Internet, reading a report sites
which unplugged their ARPANET connection were down longer than sites which
remain connected and got repair information over the net.

Does anyone else remember that, and knows a citation for the report (or
news story) I'm recalling?
