I've been on the phone with various vendors all night (funny how wcom
affects so much of this, hmm? ;-)  )

Anyway - it's not 5664 DS3's - the train wreck is scattered over approx
5664 feet of track - and WorldCom is prevented from getting in there to
start repairs until the local authorities, CSX, and NTSB (I think,
guessing on that one) have finished their investigation.  The guy I just
got off the phone with told me that this particular cut will likely be
down all night.

I'd post this to NANOG, but I didn't sign up for posting access, since I
don't really have much to post. :-)  If you could post it, I'd greatly
appreciate it. :-)
