A tip to all outages.org members. Do you want your connections to come
back up immediatly? Send a sarcastic outage report to outages.org
chastising your provider and like magic, your connection will come back
up.
 
Embarq customers in minnesota now have internet access again.

Embarq customers in minnesota have now been without internet access for
almost 24 hours. confirmed this evening with embarq support that they
are "waiting for parts" and repair will most likely not be until sunday.
Parts? Really Embarq? You need to wait for parts? Are you not a regional
ISP that serves at least 250000 people? And isn't the Qwest/Cisco parts
depot something like 30 miles away?
 
What I want to know is who at embarq is going to get canned for letting
a service contract expire or not having the appropriate spare hardware?
 
 
P.S. Hey Embarq engineers, BGP was designed so you could have more than
one upstream provider.
