Re: Bellovin sez...
>Forgive my directness, but there was no _new_ data at all >in what the referenced URL quoted Steve/Matt as saying. I'll admit I asked Steve & Matt a pretty softball question, but that wasn't really the point. My question was really about my fear that Internet outages aren't news anymore. Have outages really become so common place that people now accept them as the normal condition of the net? There is a lack of any new data. In general providers seem to be releasing less and less information why outages occur. Are natural disasters really the major cause of outages, or is pilot error a bigger factor than providers care to admit?
