As described below, external network connections to the campus of the
University of Wisconsin - Madison will be either inaccessible or slow
from 20:00 CST 2000/01/03 until 01:00 CST 2000/01/04.  CST is our
local time zone: Central Standard Time in North America.  These local
times correspond to 04:00 - 07:00 GMT Tuesday 2000/01/04.

This planned outage will affect the,, and domains because the name servers for those domains
and some of the primary http servers for those domains are here.

Those of us on this campus hope to be so occupied with celebrating a
victory by the Wisconsin Badgers football team in the Rose Bowl game
(to be played on January 1) that we won't notice this outage. :-)

DoIT Network Engineering will be changing the UW's autonomous system
number on January 3rd, 2000, from 10pm until 1am.  This will involve
disabling all off-campus connectivity.  Internal network traffic will
not be affected.  Off-campus connectivity will be re-established in
stages, so throughput to some sites may appear slow at first, and should
increase with time.  Full throughput should be re-established by 1am.
