    It is central time.

    This is not me doing this.

    I got a message from server hosting company. They are doing work on their end. When I have gotten these messages there have been times that nothing happens at all and other times we are down for a couple of hours.

    From the host.

    "ATT has requested to perform emergency maintenance on their fiber equipment within our Datacener."

    I guess it just depends on what fiber equipment gets pulled.

    Generally speaking, when AT&T works on fiber terminators, they have spares, so any downtime is usually minimal. They give the window because they're not sure what time the techs are arriving.

    I think it's really the government putting spy software on the server to keep better tabs on all of us subversive tool carriers

    Remember, big brother is watching

    Nah,

    We have the whole alphabet soup in here all the time. We have members from just about every agency and we have lurkers including everything from the NRC to the Justice Department. They don't need any spy software out here they are already here anyway.

    Ha! Trust me, there are plenty of professional fiber/copper suppliers out there worse than AT&T.

    XO will never, ever, EVER get my business EVER again.

    (So far, I've personally prevented 10 companies from going to them, likely costing them >10 MILLION/year because of their really crappy customer service and cross country circuits in general.)

    Nah...

    Just put a nice little disclaimer in your user profile about all posts being for "entertainment" and "educational" purposes only. :rofl:

    IANAL btw... your results may vary.


    edit: just updated my status... just in case!
