According to federal records and news reports, train derailments are up about 15% even if you take into account the growth in rail traffic. Thursday happened to be a particularly notable day on the network. Imagine if you were in the brand-new government Cyber-warning center yesterday. UUNET network-wide problems (train cuts cable or IS-IS problems?) Earthlink 1.5 million customers out of service due to a power failure MSNBC web site off the air due to a SYN attack Cable & Wireless has master ticket open on their network Explosion in NYC LA Times leaks CIA warning about China hackers attacking US What would you do? Would you call anyone? Who would you call? Hint: the answer is not Sean. I can usually gauge how the network is doing by the size of my Inbox.
