I'm glad someone commented on the political agenda this list seems to
have taken on. Likewise I've been on here for decades. Thinking back
even longer I think about what a political hot potato the Bell System
Divestiture was with plenty of opinions to go around. At the time most
people that discussed telecom and later the internet on bulletin
boards and lists such as this stuck to the pragmatic facts of what was
happening and how it was coming down. Trump is Trump. I can get
political opinions everywhere and anywhere. A list like this probably
should just stick to telecom deregulation and open internet newsworthy
items without tilt and opinion in one direction or the other. Just the
facts m'am, just the facts.

Full disclosure: I just retired, and starting collecting Social
Security benefits. I also have a small pension from the Management
Pension Fund of Verizon. However, my Non-management fund of over
$300,000.00 was stolen by a company called "IDEARC" while I was
clinically depressed and unable to manage my affairs.
The thought that a civil servant could be denied what might be his
only retirement option - for the alleged offense of "Lack of candor" -
is Orwellian at best and Machiavellian at worst. This is, in other
words, either an effort by the conspriator-in-chief to convince the
(mid-term) voters that ignorance is strength and freedom is slavery,
or a barely veiled effort to extort perjurious testimony from
Mr. McCabe in order to further cloud the Special Council's efforts to
find out if Donald Trump was elected with unlawful help from Russia.
If this list has "taken on" a "political agenda," I'm not aware of
it. I don't knowingly lie or misrepresent the truth, and I don't
"spin" the articles I accept for publication to try to make them seem
like something they are not. If I comment on something, my remarks are
clearly separated from the original article, and clearly marked as
being from me.

Hi, Can you tell me where i can buy G.703/G.704 to V.35 (Winchester
connector) interface converter? I know many manufacturers have
stopped production. I am looking for those that [are] still shipping.
***** Moderator's Note *****
I'm not sure if G.703/4 were ever used outside the "V.35" interface,
so I'm not sure what you're asking, but I'll publish this in hopes
that someone else can help you.

Winter Storm Toby is headed your way and is likely to hit hard with heavy,
wet snow and strong winds. In the event of a power outage, here are some
quick tips to get you back up and running once your power is restored.
Moderator Note: the following URL's have been modified so that they will open in a separate window or tab, since Verizon's coders have chosen to loop your "Back" button. When you've seen the Verizon site they point to, you can just close the window/tab that was opened.
- To fix most issues, unplug your Verizon equipment, and plug it back in.
- Didn't work? You may have to reset your Optical Network Terminal (ONT)
by following these instructions to Reset your ONT
- Still no luck? Access the My Fios app via a mobile device or visit
verizon.com/outage for answers to common questions or to
submit a repair request.
Stay warm and safe.

1. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TL;DR
Now, at the risk of being pedantic, I'll ask how Verizon's customers
are supposed to access online instructions on how to reset their
Optical Network Terminal. Does Verizon assume that everyone with FiOS
service will also be equipped with a fully charged cellular phone that
has a data plan, a browser, an email application which is set up for
access to their email server, and a screen that can be read in bright

FCC rule improperly treated everyone with a smartphone as a potential

Federal judges have struck down an anti-robocall rule, saying that the
Federal Communications Commission improperly treated every American
who owns a smartphone as a potential robocaller.
The FCC won't be appealing the court decision, as Chairman Ajit Pai
opposed the rule changes when they were implemented by the
commission's then-Democratic majority in 2015. Pai issued a statement
praising the judges for the decision Friday, calling the now-vacated
