I dont know if this is generic but recently I have problems with both of my 
isps, getting them to respond to anything without a using a cattleprod is 
proving problematic. I reported a critical incident today (during a network 
upgrade, one of their routers attached to our network was reconfigured - at 
our request, unfortunately they transposed a couple of digits and gave it the 
ip address of a an NT pdc) Six hour later I am still waiting....

At both ISPs I used to able to talk to technically competent staff pretty much 
strightaway, now I seem to have fight through two or three layers before I 
fond someone who doesnt immediately think of thongs when I say cisco.


this concludes my rant...thank you for listening
