  Court Orders ExciteAtHome to Shut Service
  SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A federal bankruptcy judge ordered Internet
  service provider ExciteAtHome Corp. (OTC BB:ATHMQ.OB - news) to shut its
  high-speed Internet service at midnight Friday, but said he was
  confident the company could quickly strike a new deal with cable companies to
  prevent service interruption for its some 4 million subscribers.
