RE: Horrible world trade center crash, traffic effect

Our Internap DS-3 circuit is down in NY. InterNAP can't call the circuit out
to Verizon, because Verizon isn't doing any testing or dispatching
currently. It could be a few days till this circuit comes back. We are
moving to our other providers at different geographical sites currently.

I can concur. Network running fine (busy, but not full). Servers *very* 
busy. I am amazed how few network outages in NYC I am hearing about.
