I've lived though one of these a few years ago, the core itself stayed up
though crippled as it was :)

David, you name sounds familiar have we worked @ the same place before?

I've seen a case where a single error in the
configuration file of a $VENDOR_1 router was accepted
(due to an 'undocumented feature'), and this caused
the wholesale importation of BGP routes into the IGP,
which caused most of their $VENDOR_2 hardware to spaz
out.  Locating the single error was a matter of hours,
not minutes, so effectively a typo took out that ISP -
and it's considered by most to be a relatively
well-designed network.
