Yes, I was digressing somewhere loosely on topic.

At approx. 2:30am on 4th September 2008 we experienced a very odd
outage, that Orcon support knows nothing about.
Just wanted to see if anyone else experienced a similar issue.
I, who live north of the bridge, could get to the orcon data centre, but
could not get to our queen street office.
Other admin who lives south of the bridge could get to queen street
office, but not to the datacentre.
Unsure if this only effected Orcon or other providers as well.
Be good to hear others experiences, or even an explanation if someone
Thanks, and kind regards.
As in previous years we  are thinking about having a Sysadmin
event on one of the streamed days before the main NZNOG 09 days.
This post is to gauge interest in this. Could you please email me
directly (not the list):
1. If you would probably attended
2. Things you could talk about?
3. Specific content you would like to see?
4. If you have other comments?
 - Andrew, Ewen and me.

This is to notify you that one or more objects in which you are
designated for notification have been modified in the NZRR routing
These objects are used to configure the various NZIX route servers
(http://nzix.net/) so you can expect the relevant servers to be reloaded
in the near future. The reloading of the servers is staggered over a
period of time so that if you are peering with both servers at an
exchange, you can maintain at least one BGP session at all times and
consequently a full set of routes.

Just wondering if any users are aware of, or offer, regular remote
monitoring services (- e.g. ping etc) to a specified host(s), then alerting
of non-communication, to email/txt?Payment in beer/$$s is an option.
Replies off-list are fine.
Does anyone have a contact number for the Optus NOC? Have emailed them and tried normal support number, but I'm not getting anywhere fast. Google is failing me too :(

InternetNZ and TVNZ7 are running an ICT Ministers Election Debate on Tuesday
23 September, for information see www.debate.net.nz
There are remaining spaces available in the studio audience at Avalon. If
you would like to be in the studio then let Richard Wood from InternetNZ
(richard at internetnz.net.nz) know as soon as possible.
If you are going to be at home (or at work) that evening then be sure to
join in the streamed video and IRC chat accessible through the website.
Participation will allow for the real-time firming up of questions to be put
to the Ministers during this debate. Many from the NZNOG community
participated in the INZ debate leading up to the last general election, and
I hope many more can participate this time.
To keep on topic, there will be beer at Avalon for the studio audience
(hosted by TVNZ)
