Not so boring night....

Last night an outage occured at the backbone level,. causing an outage on the popular Massive Multi-player Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) World of Warcraft.  It looks as if things have returned to normal now.  The interesting thing here is that, even on a Saturday night/Sunday morning, the internet is still as heavily used, or almost as heavily used, as during the day.  Gone are the days where, on a weekend night, a major provider can take a 4-hour stint for some downtime maintenance.  Looking at the report from the past 4 hours, we can see that there were still some slow spots in the country.
