Absolutely!  365 Main handled this outage very well, both at the time, but
more importantly with the followup as you can see from the URL above, which
as you can see was made (very!) public by them at the time, and not covered
in "confidential/customer only/etc" warnings.

Those that have (finally) received the notification from HE about yesterdays
outage will notice the stark difference between the way they've handled it
and the way 365 Main handled things...

  Scott.
