Just to show some solidarity, there is a power outage currently in
parts of Wellington. NEC house (Manners/Taranaki) and the WCC/Library
building are affected. The information I have just states it was cut
due to a Transformer issue and are stating up to 4 hours before it is
Starting around 13:06 this afternoon, a number of parts of Auckland lost
At a glance, I saw some of our monitored subscribers with unprotected (or
underprotected) devices go down in:
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.

Out of curiosity how many people on this list have Sustainable UPS
collection/top up schemes in place in parts of their networks.
I.e Solar/Wind feeders to battery units? I know diesel generators are
the norm, but I have also seen solar array powered gear work pretty
well (NZ Wireless I believe have Solar fed battery arrays on their
Somes Island AP).

The New Zealand Network Operators' Group
The New Zealand Network Operators' Group (NZNOG) has no king, president
or formal membership. It consists of the subscribers to this mailing
list. The group is intended to facilitate discussion among operators of
networks in New Zealand on matters relevant to network operators as
described in the list's Acceptable Use Policy. That policy appears later
in this posting.
See http://2009.nznog.org/ for details of the conference just finished.
The plan is that next year's conference will be further south than
Auckland. Discussions are now being held with prospective hosts, so if
you have a burning desire to host New Zealand's only technical
networking conference, now would be the time to speak up.
