What's the state of telecommunications in NY? Perhaps their communications link was damaged in the bombing. Maybe they just post from work (no home PC?) and they haven't been back since the bombing.
The state of communications in NY is far better than I would have anticipated in this situation. I can only tell you of my own experiences. I'm on southern LI - about 15 miles away from the WTC. I work for a company out in CA - and have not been able to get through to them since Tuesday. Through e-mails I have learned that the company they use routed their lines through the WTC - and even though they have tried rerouting on several occasions - there has been no success. I also have had a heck of a time getting through to my parents in CT on several occasions. One of the dial-around LD services I use only yields a "circuits are busy" busy signal - the other "this number has been disconnected." There also is no TV other than CBS w/o cable. I also have a friend up in Westchester County who has been without her DSL connection since Tuesday. Hopefully that's the problem with these NY Freepers. Will be checking back in.
To: to all, Jim Robinson
I'm going to bed. Thanks for the impressive thread-bumping, concern, sleuthing and sanity.
Leave it to helpful FReepers to help me dig for facts and SO QUICKLY track down thefactor. Let's continue to work on the other two, please.
In case you're checking this in the morning, the mystery has been solved. It seems the nightmare I was having was not a "ghost in the rafters" after all, but just a "bluebird in the attic."

I can't use AT&T for long distance but I can get through with PT-1 Communications - dial 1016868 then 1 plus the number you want.
