Re: MCI [encore]

>How did they do (measured by your mailbox) today? :-(

Not a peep today.  There does still seem to be some fall out from
Monday's events, but I'm having difficulty correlating all of Tuesday's
weirdness with Monday's.  People may have been re-routing around
MCI on monday, and the extra traffic overloaded other lines; the
backlog (mail, news, etc) started flowing when MCI did a rolling
BGP reset overnight and it took most of the day to clear up; everyone
checking the Powerball lottery web sites for their lucky numbers; or
something completely different.  I didn't see any large 'outages' on
Tuesday, but there did seem to be a higher level of variability in
all types of service.

I'm interested in hearing what some of the professional and academic
Internet measurement projects showed.  I looked from many different
vantage points, but I'm always worried there may be something unusual
my customer population.

Water, electrons, and ip packets all want to follow the path of least
resistance.
