It appears that the connections between ames and the rest
of mae-w are totally dead... We have a new connection to
ames and an old one to the giga's.... I have tested with both,
and on the ames side, all ames peers come up, and on the
giga side, all giga peers come up.

I am attempting to contact mfs now.

Many things are dead at MAE-West. We have an interface now giving
over 98% packet loss (i.e. BGP doesn't come up).
