RE: COX Internet Outage BS

It is my understand that they are doing upgrade/migration in the central
US Area. One of my friends that has COX cable for his home business
didn't have internet for the last three days. So perhaps my problem is
local, but it may not be.

Ermmm, how did you determine this?


Well I have 59 cox communications lines in 59 different 
cities.  They
all
went down at the same time.  dslreports + technical staff 
stated they
are
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.
