And I think you're all wild and crazy! :-) However, what David doesn't 
know is that NIU will have it's main Internet connection cut for 
maintenance from 6Z-11Z Sunday morning. Thankfully, we have Genuity as a 
second line, so we will be fine. There might be a minor latency problem, 
but I think we'll be OK.

(Of course, now that I have got David's curosity going full tilt, it's ICN 
that is upgrading it's routers and equipment Sunday morning.)

Bottom line: everything's cool.
