Who are you gonna call?

I think what you guys are going to do is use this forum and discussion to
improve upon or maybe make an additional list like the nice one on 
http://puck.nether.net/netops/nocs.cgi ... and everyone is going to print
it out and keep it in a safe place, as well as storing it on their phones
and on computer somewhere. Not only that but friendly noc's are going to
call or email their peers/friends/... and ask them if they've got the list
and printed it out, ... 

... not only that, but we'll live in harmony, every network will peer 
nicely with each other without complaining and the Internet will work perfectly
all of the time ... NOC's/backbones will be nice to people big and small,
dial-up/Leased Line/Fibre/Cable or whatever and will fix their networks when
they are broken or under-max-load-capacity-capable without making excuses
that you are not their customer, or you are a weeny on a modem you don't have
a VPN or a Leased Line. (Think again ... that little guy on the modem at home
can very well have an OC3 somewhere, and other T-1/T-3's somewhere, and come 
morning you will be talking to them as a customer).

(well I can dream can't I??? ;-)
