There is also something to be said, and I'll mention it publically, for a
provider who, in the process of folding, takes the time to help arrange
emergency connectivity for its customers.  I've been on the short end of
the dying provider stick in the past, and didn't get such service.

As much as the providers who are cooperating in servicing Priori's
customers during Priori's disintegration (a list of which I'd like to
reecive privately, that I might patronize those businesses -- that's
behavior I approve of), Patrick and the rest of what's left of Priori's
team deserve some credit for doing a great deal more than just calling
customers and saying, "We're folding and you're outta luck, so come get
your equipment," or worse, simply shutting things down without making even
those calls.
