Lets hope that the message is not correct as it would
not be in the spirit of why the network was designed.

BTW Over here in Ireland Friday will be a national day
of morning I have never seen so many people touched
by any event. My heart goes out to all those affected.

I just sent eveything that I was forwarded, I don't know anymore nor have I 
heard this from my provider. I find this hard to believe and I just wanted 
to see if someone knew something that I didn't.

Should this request not be via the telcos pre-empting the circuits ? 

Also does the military not operate its own private network services
both voice/data ?

Has anyone received a request like the one that was I forwarded below?

We just received a call from our ISP that they were contacted by Quest 
Communications who is a major National ISP who in tern was contacted by the 
Military and were asked to shut down a lot of their equipment connecting 
clients to the Internet so that there would be more bandwidth. Other ISP 
supposedly received the same call.  

Get ready for a big outage....
