Just before I email'd this out to the list ... the first 'legit' one I've
had so far was this afternoon, when there was a short outage ... before
that, I got paged at 5am telling me the network was down, was up, was
down, was up, until about 6:30am ... and all the while, I'd come to check
the servers and they were fine ... I have enough problems getting a good
nights sleep as it is, let alone getting false alarms :(

Please remove me from the page list ... personal pages are appreciated,
since it means that a problem has been verified to be at our end first ...
but auto-pages are definitely not appreciated, considering the # of
'failure points' that can exist between remote servers ...
