Holiday Gift Guide

12:30 PM -- We get a lot of PR spam that's wholly unrelated to the LR universe. But this one...
Hi -- Are you working on any holiday gift guides?
Why, how did they know? Of course we're gearing up for the the LR Holiday Gift Guide!

ROADMs for the kids! A next-generation CMTS for Auntie Em, because the paint is fading on her old one! Exploding DSLAMs for parties! (See AT&T: Defect Caused VRAD Explosion and AT&T Confirms Second VRAD Fire.)

And don't forget our festive holiday rightsizing kits, because nothing says Christmas like layoffs! (See Luminous Loses Its Luster.)

Any other bright ideas? The message boards are always open...

re: Holiday Gift Guide How about some fiber packaged up all pretty? FiOS hasn't come to your home yet? Get the next best thing. A few fiber strands of your very own. ;)

re: Holiday Gift Guide oooh, I love it.

How about your very own Home FiOS Kit? Verizon won't come to your neighborhood? NO PROBLEM! Set up your home with our easy-to-install ONTs ... then take our super Holiday Backhoe (available in teal, taupe, or Old School Yellow) and dig, dig, DIG your way to the central office!

re: Holiday Gift Guide How about Tunable Lasers for your pet shark!

for the Dr. Evil in us all.

"I want a FiOS kit dad."

"An evil FiOS Kit?"

It should come with pliers. That old copper connection won't just cut itself.

How about bringing CLG back instead of Dr. Evil?

There's an idea. Or how about doing a J.Peterman-style catalogue with BobbyMax writing the narration?

re: Holiday Gift Guide Oooh!
