When faced with a totally vague question, lacking context or useful information, it's up to you to supply your own. Start with, always: "Yes, <vendor> is having problems in <location>." Then, tap your coworkers for assistance: 1: Name a hardware Vendor (the lower the stock value, the better) 2: Name a transport technology (frame relay, sonet, etc) 3: A number between 1 and 10. 4: A number between 8 and 32. 5: A seasonally relevent catastrophic event (snow storm, backhoe, exploding squirrel) Respond: "Yes, <vendor> is having problems in <location>. Seems <5> hit this morning around <3> am, effecting <2> connections in that location. <Vendor> is having problems getting backup systems online, because they were idiots and deployed <1> gear without failover. At last check, it'll be at least <4> hours before they get things sorted out." - billn
