I noticed that all PSI Canada/Istar traffic dropped off the planet todya. 
I changed accounts and it would appear Sprint was able to stay alive....

I just heard "all of AT&T's PVC's died worldwide" -- this should be fun.

Anyone have details on AT&T tkt# 841-302-457?

Apparently 75% of all Canada/US cross-border just fell over and died.  
I've got Frame and T's *and* 800/888 voice circuits that just went for a 
nosedive.  Nobody's saying squat.

Anyone with a clue or ETA?  Who dropped a bomb or something?  Is it just 
AT&T?  I tried Sprint and MCI's NOCs; they are both also "experiencing 
heavy call volume" and that might be a clue it's bigger than just one IXC.

And I wanted to go home on time (ie. before midnight).  Sheesh.  I know, I 
know, it's my fault -- I chose this as a career :-))

Anyone with a clue, drop us a note?


PS:  yes, yes, this really should have gone to outage-discuss.  Sorry...
