I am having a Broadband outage, and as a result the posting is going to be non existent for another hour or so. Speakeasy tells me there is some problem with the DSLAM in the central office in my San Francisco neighborhood. Covad will have to reset the DSLAM, and if that doesn’t work, they would make hardware repairs. Either way, no connectivity for anywhere between one hour to 24 hours. Who know?
