NEWS UPDATES AS OF THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20
by Roger Burns

Patient online group's service
returns to normal

The CFS-L / alt.med.cfs group is the oldest and largest online support group for CFS patients. Its operation was recently disrupted by the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. The group is now operating normally, thanks to timely repairs of Internet data lines by New York's Verizon Telephone Company.

The group's messages, which are available both as an email list and as a Usenet newsgroup, are managed by the Maelstrom Listserv software which is sponsored by St. John's University in New York City. The University's Internet connection was disrupted when the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center were destroyed by a terrorist attack on Sept. 11. Hundreds of disability- and illness-related online groups were suspended when the University's Internet connection was cut.

The moderators of the CFS-L group took the lead in requesting of the telephone company that a high priority be given to restoring service to the online support groups. Within 14 hours of placing the request, the Internet connection was restored for the Maelstrom Listserv and the support groups were then back online. Verizon Telephone Company is continuing to repair and re-route 3.5 million disrupted telephone circuits in New York.


Aerial view of the disaster area
The World Trade Center's twin 110-storey towers were destroyed by a bold terrorist attack involving hijacked passenger jets that were purposely crashed into the buildings, killing all aboard the aircraft including the terrorists themselves. Around the same time, a third plane was rammed into the Pentagon military headquarters in Washington, DC. The death toll in New York is currently counted as approximately 5,000 and in Washington it is about 200.
