    "We're sorry but the number you have dialed is no longer in service. Please hang up and dial the operator."

    ... anybody here got a phone with a dial on it...?

    I don’t want to bother them so I will just peek in their windows....

    If they use same software then the likelihood is they all got a Software Update. Most likely issue.

    Earlier tonight (8-9 pm) I tried to talk to my buddy who lives in Ft. Walton Beach, FL (I'm in GA). We got less than a minute of connection before the lines went dead. We redialed/reconnected about 7-8 different times; but the same thing happened each time. Finally, we just gave it up....never could stay connected long enough for a conversation. We've never had this situation happen before during the five years since he moved to Florida.

    Your constant caring and concern for your fellow man (and of course wimmins too) never ceases to amaze me. Just don't get to close to the window or your breath may steam it up. Not that I....um..... know from personal experience.

    The alert for AZ was for Cochise county, not exactly a major metropolitan hotspot.

    I don’t see the police doing anything due to the Mayors listening to their communist governors.

    Is this an attempt to rapidly escalate "defunding" police, or, at least being able to call them??

    It is all connected to Microsoft. My agency went through an email outage. Thankfully that is the only product we use that relies on their infrastructure.

    I *did* have a problem with this this weekend. Microsoft forced an Edge update on a Win7 system (with updates disabled) and in the process broke scheduled tasks. That kept newly manufactured cellular radio MEIDs from being uploaded to the appropriate carriers...

    Well, at least Karen can't call the cops to report someone 'stole' her parking space at Walmart, just before she got to it.

    The phone outage in Florida was last month in Levy Co . I think Face Book is doing it .

    Wouldn't be surprised if this turned out to be the case. SO SICK of MicroSnot force feeding their "UpDatEs" to machine they do not own, often killing the machine and/or data and/or programs in the process. :fist:
    I kinda hope it turns out to be MicroSnot's doing -- perfect opportunity for that We Own The World! entity to fall under extreme scrutiny by the feds -- time for some anti-trust anti-monopoly action on M$'s arse.
