Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

Yeah, but I used to include clauses in the contracts for telephone and data system, etc. that the contractor had to have a supply of spares in stock for all items that could cause a single point of failure. But that is so 20th century and I know not who would enforce such a claim on cable companies. But with only one high speed path into Mtn. Home, a fiber cable along the highway from Harrison, a drunk in a truck can easily cause a 12 hr. outage. Either reason should be unacceptable. Should be.
