Re: do ISPs keep track of end-user IP changes within thier network?

Wait, you mean to say that the normal mode for TNT's was it *not* to reboot
and crash all the time? :)

Ascend tech support's stock answer to any issue was either

1) Upgrade the code
2) Oh, you already tried that? downgrade the code! :)

And the company that managed to put out a release to 'fix a spelling error'
that managed to completely break all IP routing? :)

(Yes, I loved the PM2/PM3's)

I personally never ran the Ascend gear (outside of a setting up a
customer's Ascend Superpipe 95 dual ISDN router one time), but I heard that
the TNT gear doubled as space heaters. I remember one facility we were in
that had a catastrophic cooling failure and the temperatures went to insane
levels. Our PM3's happily kept running and never had an issue where I heard
every TNT box in the facility kept rebooting and crashing.

Back in the day (geesh I feel old just saying that), I deployed a lot of
PM3’s …. Then we moved to Ascend TNT Max stuff - that was very exciting
back then!

"Exciting" was just the word for Ascends.  In the mid 90s, I cured lots of
this excitement by putting my ascends on a socket timer which physically
rebooted them a couple of times daily.  The support load dropped off
substantially due to that.
