MCI and SprintLink are partitioned (fwd)

Currently MCI peers with Sprintlink at four places: Mae-East,
Mae-West, New York NAP, and Chicago NAP, and these peers do 
backup each other.  I just checked the peer status a few 
minutes ago.  Here is what I found: 

interconnect	up time
Mae-East	6:06:45    (sheduled maintainence this morning)
Mae-West	3d04
NY NAP		4d20
Chicago NAP	1w6d

Clearly this data does not support the remark that a 
partition (total loss of peers) happened between MCI and 
Sprint yesterday evening.
