Yeah, I know.  I deserved that.  For reasons best discussed only after
consuming large quantities of beer, I hadn't filtered that BGP session.
A ticking time bomb that finally went off.

With the end of ANS as a seperate network, will there be any network
pressure to keep any public routing registry up to date?

I'd even be willing Cisco memory prices for that!!!


Also a reminder, the electric power industry will be conducting a Y2K drill
on Friday, April 9, 1999.  This is not expected to affect end-customer's
electrical service.


Next week, April 14, the FCC NRIC committee will be reviewing the telephone
industry Y2K tests.  http://www.nric.org/

I'm looking forward to the end of 1999.  It means no more Y2K presentations.
