I didn't see a posting from Sean, yet, but there apparantly was a multi
telco fiber cut in the Chicago area. I have no additional details at this
time. Anyone know anything?
I've experienced my own personal loss of phone service, so I've been
off-net for the day. My home phone went dead yesterday, no dialtone.
When you call the number, Josh answers. As far as I know, no Josh is
living in my apartment. Naturally Pacific Bell Telephone says nothing
is wrong with their lines, so it must be my telephone that is broken,
and it will be $45 if pacbell looks a it.
In other news, MasterCard International is building a new international
datacenter outside of St. Louis (O'Fallon). St. Louis had about 9 inches
of rain, and MasterCard had some unplanned water intrusion.
