Agreed. That's the very reason I didn't want all of our operations staff to be overseeing the changeover since I didn't think it was necessary. As an ISP that caters to business customers we probably won't be made aware of any issues until Monday. Having checked with the on-call perrson this week, she says no one has made a peep, and our normal weekend ops people are working their regular schedules. -- Joseph W.
