National software dist having phone problemsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Following is an e-mail I received this morning from a national software distributor. I have contacted the principal and confirmed this problem appears to be y2k-related. Sorry I won't publicly confirm the distributor's I.D., so this will have to go into the FWIW category.

(That's Oh Oh!)
We are experiencing telephone problems at XXX Distribution.
We CAN receive telephone, fax and email.
Outbound, we are very limited in dialing long distance numbers other than 800 numbers and we cannot fax out. We CAN email, however.
We encountered this problem Monday morning and our telephone vendor hasn't yet diagnosed it. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We are using email, supplemented by cell phone, for outgoing messages.
WE ARE RECEIVING AND PROCESSING YOUR ORDERS NORMALLY but our ability to confirm with you is somewhat restricted.
The XXX Distribution Team.
