Diane, Can you get FCC text from today's NRIC assessment. See the thread below about Wall St. Journal article on telephones.

Well, I'm not Diane, but you may want to try The Network Reliability and Interoperability Council Page.

I didn't snoop around the many papers to grade by tomorrow.


-- Ron Southwick (, April 14, 1999.

Oops, make that too many papers.

Although I wish it were only two. Ron

Diane, I think the WSJ article said a new assessment report was being issued today.

Looking at the web-site, that is the most recent report posted. It might take the web-master a few days to get any new reports linked.
