There was a large Time Warner outage a week or two back... it was blamed on a fiber cut in DC (that fed this area). Makes me wonder if it's just a coincidence...
Ghost of GWB?
How many years has Obama been in office? Eventually you've got to give him some credit... you know, what with the 2nd term and all....
I've seen Stargate. I know this is just another lame government cover up of an alien visitation. Better check on your cows!!
I'd never do it myself, but I'm looking forward to seeing which projects survive and how they change the landscape in five years. X11 was difficult to use for years... let's see what a little competition can do for innovation and usability.
It's possible the list was snagged by a disgruntled (or ex) employee who sold the list. The Powers That Be may not believe the list has been compromised. A few back channel comments and/or a FB isn't actionable proof.
I'd post to their support email line (I'm assuming they have one?) and provide the unique email address you used. Provide more detail than this post. Then if they still ignore, share it on publicly as a public service to their other customers.
I had a friend that was in a similar situation. A company that handled their mass emails had an employee grab a ~ton~ of addresses when he quit. It took a few reports, but once they realized what had happened, they acted.
Can you link to docs in the old system? If so, create Google docs that are organized links into the old system. You want to see the minutes from all the meetings over the last year? Here's that page of links. Budgets? Here it is.
Over time you'll make the Google Docs the de factor standard. Once everyone is accustomed to using Google docs, you can start creating new docs in any system. Including Google docs.
This will gradually wean people off the old system without any single, massive switch. And hopefully it'll be a nice, gradual process.
btw, if the old system doesn't support links into documents, you can ask Bob to add it.
