The event made at least the radio and probably the print media. The
big uproar was because "many ATMs stopped working". I guess that
puts the Internet in its proper place in the scheme of things.
I did notice the number of "subscribers" affected was below the
important 30,000 reportable FCC outage level. The last report I saw
was fewer than 22,000 customers affected, and I haven't seen any FCC
outage report show up on the FCC web site about the PacBell problems.
Wells Fargo said on average 5% of its ATM machines are out of service,
and they didn't see anything out of the ordinary yesterday. 9-1-1
automatic location identification (ALI) service was also affected,
although the calls themselves connected without problems.
