Ermmm, how did you determine this?

Well I have 59 cox communications lines in 59 different cities.  They
went down at the same time.  dslreports + technical staff stated they
having a nation wide problem right now, their entire system is down.

So thats how I determined this.


Luckily for me their entire outage did not affect 5 different offices I
have using them. Outside of anything, this email seemed better suited for
NANOG than it did full disclosure. But... Since it's here now, it is
likely going to be some more DNS bs or equipment failure from my guess. I
do know Cox not too long ago did some migration over, or replaced
something that broke them one time or another. Maybe they still haven't
gotten their act together. As for major outage? I can VPN through 5
different office from work spread throughout the states without a hitch.
