I'm no bean counter, but if you're losing this much money from a xDSL-related outage, perhaps it might be a good idea to invest in a carefully-planned redundant infrastructure, including some means of backup transit. This is by no means a revolutionary concept, and may very prevent businesses from becoming defunct businesses in extreme cases like this. Some might argue that DSL (other than that which is provisioned by the ILEC or another party with deep pockets) is going away sooner or later, or at the very least, undergoing drastic changes in the way it's marketed and aggregated. But that's beyond the scope of this discussion. Sorry if this isn't the message of sympathy you were hoping for. -adam
