        \_ I am shocked, *SHOCKED* that the NSA spies on foreign and US
           citizens and foreign governments. This Snowden guy must have
           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.
           \_ Most people seem to have been surprised by this.

GSWarrior Vandals cut an AT&T fiber-optic cable in San Jose early this morning, knocking out landline and cellular phone service and the Internet to thousands of residential customers and businesses in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties, authorities said. Police used yellow tape to cordon off the area, which is near railroad tracks, as investigators and phone company workers descended into an underground vault where the cable is located. The outage is affecting 911 service, meaning people who have an emergency will have to get to a police or fire station or hospital on their own if they need help. View Replies To: GSWarrior someone stole the copper and stuff from a hotel being renovated into apartments in Dallas the other day. It also got flooded apparently, they took the pipes while the water was on? View Replies To: GSWarrior Nothing to the actual optical signal as long as the line is in tact. However, regen (signal regeneration) and all other electronics would fry due to the EMP (electromagnetic pulse). Because regens are usually 35-45 miles apart for long distance fiber optics, a single atmo popped nuke wouldn't affect those regens if in the center of the fiber optic span. View Replies To: martin_fierro Land lines and internet seem to be okay here in Aptos. I would gladly contribute to a reward to see these low lifes prosecuted to the max. View Replies To: Abathar We need to make a law that keeps the price of copper low so these things don't happen. We accidently cut a phone cable and they wanted to charge us a couple thousand dollars a minute that it was down but they had their cable on our private property and it was supposed to be and documented to be in the right of way and it was too shallow, to boot. View Replies To: GSWarrior What would a nuclear device exploded in the atmosphere do? Read "One Second After" by Newt's buddy William R Forstchen. It's terribly written but has the general description of the aftermath of such an event. View Replies To: tiki I once cut off phone service to over 100,000 by cutting a major underground phone line. I was putting in anchors for overhead cable lines and ran one though the line. The location was correct for what was on the map I was contracted to work from. View Replies To: tiki They laid mine down in the same trench when they ran my power line along my driveway (3/4 mile). Last summer a bolt of lightning hit the ground directly over where they laid it. The power line was protected and blew the fuses on the transformer box, so that was fine, but the phone line took a direct hit through 2' of dirt and melted the line along the entire length of buried cable. They sent a trencher team out to replace it and they only went about 6" deep. I know it's only a matter of time before I hit the stupid thing. Like every horror movie, you cut the phone lines before you go into the house and start terrorizing the inhabitants. There's Muslims and/or Mexicans and/or Obrown Shirts behind this. They are seeing how widespread the communication disruption is, and how long it takes to be brought back online. View Replies To: EggsAckley I just heard on local radio that they've found a manhole cover moved and inside is one of the cables, cut. It sounds like the good old boys at the local had to many beers and went out doing some contract negotiations of their own. This is a great opportunity and example to illustrate the proposed "Card check" legislation to eliminate the workers' right to secret-ballot voting for union representation would only protect and propagate this criminal thuggery into all industry nationwide. View Replies To: NY Attitude Keep saying to yourself "it was an isolated incident" and not a "terrorist probe" of our communication system. I keep telling myself, intentionally harming the telecommunications infrastructure is a federal crime.
