And yet, with 90% of the net implementing the "will never do" scenario, we manage to get a lot of internet retail done anyhow. I'm obviously going to need a *lot* more caffeine to sort through that conundrum....
Could you imagine slashdot, amazon or google going down for 24 hours? I think there would be panic in the streets. Uptime might not matter for small hosts that do mom and pop websites or so-called "beta" blog-toys, but every time Level3 takes a dump, it's my wallet that feels the pain. It's actually a rather frustrating situation for people who aren't big enough to justify a /19 and an AS#, but require geographically dispersed locations answering on the same IP(s).
