AT&T outage (was: the whole world disappeared)

volume, so I haven't been able to get through.

The press release was delayed long enough to miss most of the
deadlines for this morning's newspapers. But those reporters are
sure going to be mad in tomorrow's editions.

I saw it headlined on the front page of USA Today earlier today
