Santa Clause is coming to town (TT)

I was speaking to a co-worker this morning and there is going to be an offsite townhall tomorrow in Rochester, NY. Anyone know what the occasion is? or is this just another cheerleading session. Any PAE / Earthlink people can you chime in?

What happened to the Hudson OH NOC building?

I drove by there today and it looks like it's abandon. Did they finally decide to sell and take the $ and run? I am not at all surprised - but am surprised by how quickly this was done. Apparently time is of the essence....... R.I.P. Windstream
