Better than this:) Does anyone remember when a diligent tech at Sprint
sent an fcc notification about an outage in the fine state of NV when a
certain set of ds3's and oc3's went ofOfline from a circuit braker trip.
I wish I could find it to quote but it went somet ing like...

AA faulty braker caused several ds3's to go off line including service to
the military installation area51 and s4.

This was posted on the fcc.gov site for at least 2 or three days that I
can recall.:):)
