Forget it, Jim. I've been on the maintenance bridge call for the last six 
hours and once the VPs got on, they told the GNOC to black the server out 
for six hours, they'd approve the overrule of the entire CAB if needed, 
and threatened to fire the storage, server, and data center vendors for no 
real reason. They kept yelling about customer sat for the Intertrode 

You know how it is! The server will be rebooted come hell or high water!
