I agree.  Tell your ISP you want an outage mailing list, and you would
like it if the ISP actually posted outage information to that list.  I
got back on the Sprint list, my subscription having vanished, and Sprint
list has improved a lot.  CNN and http://www.news.com/ still seem to
"scoop" most providers though.

I just checked my subscription, and I think I'm still subscribed to it.
But I haven't seen anything posted on outage-discuss@academ.com since
last year.  The last thing I remember was a brief announcement of
Craig's Inter-Provider Notification web pages.  The outage list hosted
by dal.net seems to have more traffic, although a lot of it obviously
involves dal.net IRC servers.
