Let Bogons Be Bogons: A Nightmare from ISP Hell || kuro5hin.org

Let Bogons Be Bogons: A Nightmare from ISP Hell || kuro5hin.org: "We carefully planned the move for 6 months and brought our customers into the planning process. So we sent out an RFP, awarded the bid and began the process. What followed was to become a disaster. It was the 'perfect storm' for an ISP failure."

This is a fun little story of what it's like to be a techie in the world of the internet. It's not an uncommon situation, though the actual problem will usually be something different every time. The very nature of the 'Net precludes anything like our telephone system; where you just pick up the phone and dial. Will Net Neutrality bring us closer or send us farther from "Webtone?" $DEITY only knows.
