i just called UUnet, and basically asked nicely "what happened on
monday, around 5pm...?"
the support person looked at the logs for my links, and said that they
appeared stable at that point. i pressed a little more "don't you
have any network status reports for monday? did someone trip over a
switch or something?"
he said, "oh yah monday! someone nuked some routing tables, that's
right...like 50,000 customers were out, our call queue was crazy!"
the "phone-sex-voice" will get answers out of anybody. ;)
