Sounds like on purpose.

Not to be ghoulish, but the traffic impact is looking to be fairly large
on the 'net (and on the PSTN in the NYC area).

few people (in pgh, PA) that i have been talking to on irc have
reported ./'d news sites everywhere.  (cnn.com, yahoo.com, msnbc.com,
etc.)  my office has been relegated am radio, which is pretty pathetic
for an ISP.

pretty poor performance for a network orginally designed to faciliate
communication in just such circumstances.  i hope that military and
federal communication is faring better than the commercial sites.


All VHF TV stations except for CBS 2 are off the air, many radio stations
are off the air, and it's largely impossible to get a call in.  All

i assume that in nyc or dc only.  we are listening to AM radio just
fine...
