My apologies to the list

  • From: Rishi Singh

I offering a general apology to the entire nanog list. At least one
subscriber found my post about the NASDAQ outage not relevant to the charter
of NANOG. 

I thought it would be quite handy to a few folks who's companies, like mine
have network connections directly to NASDAQ stock market along with a
multitude of ECNs. I consider NASDAQ a major networked system as well,
although not a public ip network, carries quite important information.

In addition I am willing to guess that a lot of people on this list work for
publicly traded companies who would find the news helpful.

Officials of the computerized stock market said an error by an MCI Worldcom
technician led to the problems.
