Re: San Jose Telephone Problems 3/10-3/17
Sean/list, I was watching the news this morning re: This issue. A Pacbell spokesman was talking to a reporter and here is what he had to say ( My memory is a bit foggy) " Pac bell is also the victim here. We did not cause this. It was a private contractor that caused this ACCIDENT" At the point he said accident it sounded like he was getting ready to start yelling at the reporter. I just thought you all might find this funny.. Please no flames! PS: I am going to Vancouver BC on Thursday for a week. Anyone know anything fun to do in the area?
