You're surprised?  Those purveyors-of-ignorance known as the US news 
media, have been selling y2k-doom ever since Monica Lewinsky quit smoking 
cigars.

If they can do something like move the millenium aniversary up by one
year, then surely they can convince people to shut off their routers for
no reason.

20% of our customer frame circuits are down, and about 30% of our 
dedicated-dialup customers.  Mail bound for these sheep is now accumulating 
in large quantites at their backup MXs (our smtp boxes).
