Well, it's nice that he posted something, but why did he have to wait until
16 hours after the problem occurred [1]?  Someone else noticed the problem
and sent a message to NANOG in UNDER 3 MINUTES [2].  Holtzman also made no
mention in this notice about how a sysadmin overrode the "quality
assurance" mechanisms or that they have made any effort to prevent future
occurances of the same problem(s).

        To join this with another thread, I think it'd be a Good Thing[TM]
        if the InterNIC were to start up an outage list...it sure would
        be popular.  My only request (should any 'NIC people be reading
        this and taking me seriously, not that I think I deserve to be
        taken seriously too often) is that it be free of advertisements
        (even for NSI) or new payment schemes or /anything/ that isn't an
        outage that affects the provider community.

Too little, too late.

        But, better than most of us have grown accustomed to expect.  I
        really don't think anybody here is trying to say that the InterNIC
        is now perfect, only that they've improved.
