If were just talking about outages historically, I recall the 1996 AOL
Email debacle, not really anything to do with network mishaps but more so
DNS configuration..

As well, I believe the North East 2003 blackout was a great DR test that no
one was expecting.

Of course we also have the big non-events too such as Y2K....
