He may have indeed had ATT ID. But the colo security people wanted a
government ID. "Company" ID is relatively meaningless and trivially
forged, particularly for small values of "company". If I were to show
up in a truck with "Jay's Telco" on the side, produce "Jay's Telco" ID,
and refuse to show a driver's license or government ID I would expect
datacenter security to be a bit suspicious. Why should AT&T be treated
