I've been watching that, and lately it seems that the DALnet-centric
traffic has far outweighed the Sprint/other net traffic. What I'm
going to do is split it into two lists; the main 'firstname.lastname@example.org' list
will remain general internet backbone style outage-centric,
and I'm going to create another list for DALnet outages.
I'll post more info to email@example.com likely by Tues. or Wed. afternoon
(as well as here, if people want), basically as soon as I get a chance to
set the list up on a connection faster than my current one.

Actually - if Stan has better luck than I at getting providers to direct
outage notices to his list, I'd be perfectly willing to defer to him or to
subscribe firstname.lastname@example.org to his list, or whatever seems appropriate.
All that really matters is that we try and have someplace where backbone-types
can post notice of problems so that people are aware of them and can offer an
informed answer to people and perhaps do better at working around a problem
or solving it.

Founder, the DALnet IRC Network said "Vrrrrrmmmmmm." Unless it was
just a lawn mower.
