I spent the day today calling and e-mailing my CLECs/RBOCs peers and
providers. So far nobody has a plan to do much different on New Years 
Eve/Day. Some people are planning on extra staff. Several people had no idea 
if anyone in their company had given any thought to doing something 
different. A few of the larger companies did have "special" numbers 
setup for use for y2k problems/issues with their service. This 
did give me a change to update phone numbers, and contact names.
