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"?
I think there is a difference as to network going down for 3 hours
and network going down for 3 months...

BTW - care to speculate what will happen if cat5 hurricane hits LA? :)
Or maybe we should be thinking of 8+ earthquake ....
