I agree. Tell your ISP you want an outage mailing list, and you would
like it if the ISP actually posted outage information to that list. I
got back on the Sprint list, my subscription having vanished, and Sprint
list has improved a lot. CNN and http://www.news.com/ still seem to
"scoop" most providers though.
> o For overall info, Stan Barber is running an outage mailing list.
I just checked my subscription, and I think I'm still subscribed to it.
But I haven't seen anything posted on outage-discuss at academ.com since
last year. The last thing I remember was a brief announcement of
Craig's Inter-Provider Notification web pages. The outage list hosted
by dal.net seems to have more traffic, although a lot of it obviously
involves dal.net IRC servers.
