@Home: The chicken is run over

I can confirm Sean's report from the user's side...

An aquaintence who used Excite@Home as one of their home connections
in the San Francisco Bay Area with AT&T cable service reports they
just got an automated call from AT&T which stated that it's down, it's
because they're switching over to AT&T service on his connection,
they expect it to be down for a day or two, and he'll recieve credits
on his billing for the outage time (2 days for every day out).
Apparently no word on DNS, Email addresses, etc.

I guess the @Home creditors did in fact succeed in bargaining
the shot-off big toe down to an amputated leg.
