Didn't get burned enough last time, Metcalfe?

You seem to have claimed the internet was doomed to collapse last
year. Somehow this hasn't happened. In fact, I've got to say that
stability for my customers has improved dramatically over recent

Cruising to make more collapse claims now? (You know, the standard
"oh, did I say the world was ending last Tuesday? I meant NEXT
Tuesday, of course").  Trying to salvage whats left of your
reputation? Or is it just a way of creating flame wars on nanog?

Go back under your rock.
