I was waiting for someone to bring this up, but it didn't happen.

  The "19 hour" outage of AOL was attributed to a new network
  operating system update, by at least one media story I read. I'm
  curious is there're any interesting lessons from this for the rest
  of us? Was it a goof like putting BGP into OSPF? Was it bad
  code? Was it just goofy?


  ps who is dissapointed he's not plugged in enough to just "know"
