Outage between GBLX and HE?

We saw further evidence of this on paths traversing global crossing to a customer last night.    I don't know about others but we are intending to make some efforts to move traffic other places, this type of repeated failure is just terrible, especially since they still continue to announce routes indicating reachability that does not exist.

John @ AS11404 in Seattle.

Probably another LSP blackholing issue, look at the archives a few weeks 
back you'll see the same issue on GX in Seattle. As for the issue this 
morning, they have a router that has been blackholing traffic in Ashburn 
for a good long while now.

I almost put on my Global Double Crossing t-shit this morning too. :)
