Or you could pony up for a non-preemptable circuit. Much more expensive.
Your choice. Live with it.

Well, there must be a big war coming up, because the US govmint just
appropriated our PAS-2 transponder, effectively shutting down our regional
operations on October 15.

I'm more than happy for journalists to call me.

I may be sympathetic to the USG over terrorism, but they can't go around
putting AUSTRALIAN REGIONAL ISP's out of business...
