Wed Feb 4 14:04:55 PST 1998 — Pacific Bell has pretty much completed the transition to the new switch protocol, and we no longer have problems with calls from caller-ID blocked users being refused with a fast busy signal. This project took a week to push through PacBell’s monolithic paper pushing organism, and we’re not very pleased about the handling of the whole situation. The good news is that users no longer need to dial ‘*82,’ to get through to the affected equipment! This should mean less of these false fast busy signals (actually a reorder tone), and that’s great! We’re tracking a number of other issues in our dialup group, and we’ll keep you posted here as we find solutions. -Dane
