FWIW - my attempts to direct dial in to DC and NYC around 10:30est today from
here in Indiana all met with no success - some even got no error recordings  -
just silence, other met with "all circuits busy" recordings. However, an very
helpful AT&T LD operator was able to get a call into DC for me just before 11am,
but could not get a circuit into nyc.

During the same period, i also received several calls out of both the NYC and DC
area, so it appears that the "block inbound / allow outbound" restrictions that
were described here earlier worked as intended.
