That's where I first saw the both of them as well. 

I've met Fred several times (he's now the technical consultant for an organization I'm in). I've had a few debates with him as well over the years. 

Learning is always good. I inherited a system that has a bunch of TDM connectivity. I won't give up my local TDM connectivity... local tandems, SIGTRAN, etc. However, I'm not intending to add to it. I'm going to work with Peerless, Inteliquent, etc. for the expansion of my network in that way.

Yeah, Fred Goldstein really knows everything and anything about 
absolutely everything. I learned an enormous amount from him back on the 
isp-clec list back in the day, merely as a passive observer, which is 
where I also came to know of Mary Lou. :-)
