We have equipment in 60 Hudson (RACO) and are interested in hearing any
definitive/first hand reports of the status of that facility.
We have not been able to contact our colocation provider via Telephone
presumably due to overload of the telephone network.

Anybody have any info?

We are also in 600 S federal in Chicago and the Westin building in Seattle.
Any info from those locations?

News from this part of the world: (appologies if anyone if offened by this
part being of topic for NANOG)
