So the nation wide 911 outage was caused by one bad NIC at CenturyLink.

@finn Geez. It sounds like they daisy-chained this system like an old string of Christmas lights.

"One NIC goes out, they all go out."

@finn It isn't a bad NIC. It's an underappreciated NIC that could no longer tolerate its working conditions and resorted to direct action.

@ng0 @finn highly divisible, with different rate plans for all!

my networks prof: *teaching us about how the internet relies on distributed updates*

me: wait what's to stop one bad device from fucking everything up

prof: lol
