Yeah, FGC has had a run of these. The Associated Press did a story
a few weeks ago about it. I haven't been posting about them because
FGC has been pretty good about giving out information about the problem
when I call them, even when I didn't identify myself.

This particular core router was located in phoenix, Az and 1 of my
clients was down for over 5 hours with their entire customerbase,
this kind of practice is rather harmful to small businesses on the
network. Statements without ETR were forthcoming and it
seemed that the repair was outsourced, even though I can
not confirm that...
