FWIW - my attempts to direct dial in to DC and NYC around 10:30est today from
here in Indiana all met with no success - some even got no error recordings  -
just silence, other met with "all circuits busy" recordings. However, an very
helpful AT&T LD operator was able to get a call into DC for me just before 11am,
but could not get a circuit into nyc.

During the same period, i also received several calls out of both the NYC and DC
area, so it appears that the "block inbound / allow outbound" restrictions that
were described here earlier worked as intended.

Not too surprising really, considering the number of calls that are probably
being attempted to try and check on loved ones, friends etc, not to mention
what may be reserved or taken over for emergancy agencies and such to
communicate.  I've had a bit of trouble calling anywhere LD today as well.

Rumor has it (from a reliable source) that there are LD switch problems
all over the country with at least one major carrier, not just NYC right
now.  Attempts to make LD calls to non-NYC areas have gotten me all
circuits busy.  Anyone else?
