No e-mails from Techwr-l on Wednesday at all - None. Zilch. Nada.
I did get a few miscellaneous private e-mails from outside my company,
This morning (Thursday), I got 35 e-mails from Techwr-l. The first one
was time-stamped about 9:30 p.m., Wednesday. That's right -- 9:30 PM.
The last couple are from today (around 6:30 a.m. or so).
So the questions are why the backup? Does Techwr-l go through an
intermediate server with skittish distribution problems?
I first checked with my own IT group and they showed me how there is no
blockage here, at least within my own company.
But they said a service up the line from us may have problems, or a
major cable could be out of service and traffic is rerouted.
The lack of any messages like this leads me to believe that I'm the only
one experiencing this problem.
Carolyn Upton, you're also here in metro Atlanta. Are you getting the
Techwr-l postings delayed or as they stream in normally?
