Re: GROT is back !
Well, I can inform you that this might have something to do with the fact
that the server was placed in one of the server rooms in the twin towers,
or that there was a dependecy to a server, and there was no backup. One client
I work for used a service which was placed in the twin towers and it took
about a week for them to get the service online and there was no messages
given to what have happen. By tracing the IP numberings used and some detective
work we could assume what have happened. The sad thing was the lack of information,
as if it would have been passed, it would have created both understanding,
sympathy and some patience waiting for the service to go online. I sure hope
that Tom Doan is alive and well..........
