MCI and I attempted to get in contact everyone possible yesterday with
their contact list by email, including Allwyn Crichlow by voice mail.  
(They did all the mailing, since our mail would have been deferred.)

Is this not your email address?

Since your information was the missing link, it would have been
very helpful to have been in contact yesterday, at 5PM when MCI was
doing initial {mis}diag of the situation.  The feedback I got from MCI
during the last outage was the same feedback I got from them during
this outage - Claiming there was a problem with access-lists - The same
message passed to you, and Kim.

If action at is a better method of contacting you when email
is working, what is a better method of getting in contact when email is
not working?  Considering the importance of the internic's position,
is there a 24hr Pager Number?
