Re: LA power outage?

It's also interesting to note that, at least by some estimates,
the brief power outage in L.A. yesterday took down more networks
than Hurrucane Katrina:
Of course, So. California is pretty "network-dense", but what does
that say about the level of seriousness that network operators place
on their "uptime"?

More like, "which manager is telling Santa they want a new, clue-imbued
employee for Christmas?"
I'm not too close to the story and I don't live in Los Angeles (I live and
work 55-65 miles northeast of downtown), but it seems to me that the problem
could have been avoided with a little more caution on the part of the person
who cut the wires.
