"an AT&T DHCP server decided it had other aspirations"

OK. I thought the way that was phrased was quite funny.

Out of curiosity, how did a single DHCP server cause a three-day outage? It cannot be that simple else an admin could have just grabbed another system and converted it into a backup DHCP server in less than three days.

Re: "an AT&T DHCP server decided it had other aspirations&q

One completely unsubstantiated rumor says the true cause is that AT&T ran out of IPV4 addresses and that borked the system. Did AT&T buy any blocks of addresses in the past few days?
