The moral is multihome.  It gets real old hearing people whine that 
they're losing $XXX,XXX.XX per hour, minute, whatever, when their internet 
access fails...but they spend some tiny fraction (like 1% or a lot less) 
of that per month on a single internet connection.  If your business 
depends on internet connectivity, and that much $ is at stake, you're 
stupid if you don't have some redundancy.  Nothing works all the time
