For what it's worse, AT&T has gone through a lot of trouble 
to assure it's customers (including me) that our service 
will only be interrupted to the extent that home.excite.com
may be unreachable for a short time, no other aspects of
the service should be affected (this is pointed out clearly
on their tech support line, as well as in a letter seperate
from my bill this month)


Now, if only I could find someone at AT&T that knows how
to fix the reverse DNS for the netblocks in Minneapolis...
