In case folks haven't heard, excite@home has started unplugging cable
systems. I've gotten reports from friends who's home connections have gone
dead. 

Various cable systems are working at moving customers and all that. Outages
in some cases are being quoted as 5 days and longer.

What this means for list managers? Chaos. Old addresses bouncing, addresses
moved to new domains without lots of info to the customer, all  sorts of
fun. 

Thought folks should be aware that the chaos is going to be starting. Dunno
about your lists, but on my lists, @home was up to 5% of subscribers. And
while I donšt think the entire @home network is dead, at this point, you
ought to assume it's going to happen, if it hasn't already.
