Sorry I was not able to make it to NANOG to present, but I wanted to
answer one question. Avi Freedman asked what would we do if a airplane
crashed into the side of the Atlanta-NAP. The Atlanta-NAP is at 230
Peachtree on the 5th floor. There are two buildings around this building
that go up to the 8th floor. If a airplane was to crash in the Atlanta-NAP
direction it would not hit our building. If it did hit the other side of
the building it may cut MCI metro fiber, but we have MFS and Bell South
fiber from two different sides and two different power feed to the 5th

Of course, I was half-joking, but why only one Gigaswitch? Why not two,
for redundancy, as is implemented at Pennsauken?
With a backup FDDI ring?
And I assume, spare power supplies and processors?
