To answer your question: when service was restored, the PSNs
automatically brought the trunks back up and reconnected the
network together. No manual intervention required.


P.S. Here's another good topic to rant and rave about:

Don't you hate it when hosts keep messages sitting in queues
for days, and conversations get out of sync? Take, for example,
this message we all just received this morning:

It took about 42 hours for to send it to
SRI-NIC.ARPA, and another 9 hours to make it to me.
