It may be the North American NOG, but it's been said before that it functions as a GNOG, G for Global. I don't think Brazil is insignificant. I respect Todd's work greatly, but I think he's wrong on this point.

interesting, but it's not operationally significant.  i would not
consider the fact that PHAS and Watchmy didn't alert any particular
criticism of them.  

but perhaps there was something else to which you were referring.

I think he was just referring to and answering my question.  I hope to see how these tools work in 'small' incidents as well as large-scale incidents.  Knowing the tool's capabilities increases one's ability to assess the damage while troubleshooting.
