Re: BGP route tracking.

Some updated images of routing table size and 7-day prefix withdrawals:

(Blackout is event #3 on the right.)

We're about halfway back to the table sizes we started with yesterday 
before the grid tripped. If it trends the same way through the 
afternoon, it could be back to its old self sometime around midnight 
GMT; previous experience suggests that it might stabilize somewhat 
higher than before the event.  

At any rate, steady improvement as power returns across the East.
