FCC going dark

Check out this announcement: from Sept. 2nd to Sept. 8th, "most Commission resources normally accessible through the Commission’s web site,including access to all electronic filing systems and electronic dockets, will be inaccessible.... The Commission’s web site will remain available, but with reduced content and limited search capabilities. ... FCC telephones will work but voicemail will not, and most Commission staff will not have access to e-mail."

As a practical matter, not really a big deal, since they're giving automatic extensions of filings due during that time.  And there's always snail mail....

But I'm dismayed: it's going to be a really uphill slog to explain that redundant connections are cost-efficient to an organization that knowingly crashes itself for a whole week.
