    Yeah, it always seemed like it was your basic “this is broken, send someone to repair it when we can” now they are mobilized and ready for EXTRACTION! lol good job

  • fruitcake117 says:

  • scootosan says:

    hey Ellie if you want to get “together” sometime keep that HazMat clean up number handy

  • ReliableInsider says:

    If the whole network when down . . .

    I’d have to go visit friends in person.

    Hmm. Sounds kinda nice.

  • chris7toronto says:

  • DaleMurph says:

    Great job Elle.

  • Sxkcils says:

    2:46 Hahahaha. “The hek is he talking about.”

  • DuckLuv22 says:

    Wow…most of that went right over my head. But I’m glad there are people who DO understand it. XD

  • liveinthebozone says:

    I would marry you. =]

  • ctso74 says:

    Great job, Ellie. I thought a basic rack was expensive. I can only, what one of those COLTs cost.

  • ellorybockting says:

    Ok, now THIS is informative. This could be an awesome theme. Disaster tech!!!!

  • elspethjane says:

    @ReliableInsider sometimes that’s a good thing! I agree!

  • elspethjane says:

    @newobtterb thank you!

  • ergopenin says:

    dis ho has nappy hair

  • dominic508 says:

    My Internet connection broke while I was watching this video…

  • damneddirtyapez says:

    Wait? AT&T provides phone and internet service? I wonder if they provide that to my Iphone because I’ve never been able to get the phone or internet service on it.

  • BigAndTall666 says:

    Ellie Phantastic As Usual! :-)

  • MJG164 says:

    I didn’t know they had a Hazmat team

  • purecuIt says:

    illadelph fucking up? haha jokes i love da eagles!

  • Otakkun says:

    This was really interesting! Thanks for my dose of knowledge. =)

  • GetMoneyPro1 says:

    “Hopefully we’ll never have to use them”

    -People get fired
    -Economy still down hill

  • PixelBrainMush says:

    It’s apparently working, and I wish Verizon had a better network. Yeah, a regular service blackout for no reason just rules.

  • thofus says:

    Nice video as always. :-)

  • CWOhobbes says:

    If disaster strikes, I know what to look for if i need some signal bars.

  • httprover says:

    It’s good to have a backup plan available when you need it.

  • adamlyons87 says:

    V. Interesting, cheers Ellie!

  • Cutlesnap says:

    @GetMoneyPro1 Actually, the economy has been going uphill for a while now, it’s just that we’re still deep in the valley.

  • shaneuk666 says:

    Rocketboom has to be my favourite show on the internet.

  • LindemanProductions says:

    Ooooo Cisco equiptment. Nice.

  • RadicalAns says:

    @GetMoneyPro1 never having to use them doesn’t mean you don’t NEED them. The whole idea behind disaster recovery is that you don’t want to have to use it but if something does happen you have them in place. In that situation those trucks are worth their weight in gold.

  • nowzadick says:

    Ellie is NOT HOT

  • wyvern175 says:

    I love the look on her face at 2:54 :DD

  • Probewitch says:

    These guys are the best.

  • IdleGod says:

    “we really don’t think about how they get their connection until they stop working”

    Speak for yourself.

  • do0me0nice says:

    ve-hickle!

  • MrOliver1444 says:

    Ellie is hot and cute!

  • bennyboyhead says:

    That’s pretty intense. Glad to see they’re so thoroughly prepared.

  • stereo123 says:

    I love rocketboom. Are there any other cool shows out there? What else is worth watching on the internet?

  • SolBuster says:

    @nowzadick Please tell me you didn’t just come here to say this.

  • bangNL94 says:

    “basically”
    I hear it ALL the time. Why?!

  • ACLNM says:

    2:47 and 2:55 What was Ellie looking at? Funny situation.

  • slipshodcoqbgg says:

    The time has come for Free energy to be revealed ,But the Oil companies want these technologies unknown to the masses,Get a real free energy motor at LT-MAGNET-MOTORdotCOM ,The revolution begins!

  • fujilives says:

    prepping for 2012

  • vamoonan says:

    3:22 looks like someone needs to pee

  • RAWryyy says:

    Nice, Killing Time – Kevin MacLeod. Good song choice.

  • jordanmjk0 says:

    why would there be random chlorine floating about?

  • Kaiser86 says:

    @jordanmjk0 Mustard Gas attack? It IS the highest level of risk, and they mention “humanitarian work” at some point to allow anyone to have network access regardless of the disaster situation. So I’m guessing it also takes terrorist attacks into consideration.

  • jaymarfal says:

    what a flashy title for a communication network on wheels. it’s 1914 all over again.

  • peruface says:

    gOD dAMN SHES HOT

  • lacamaradetodd says:

    You’re a good reporter, wow! Very few of those lately!

  • cuttercanfly says:

    everything about Ellie is sexi…

  • Stradigos says:

    Great report, loved it =]

  • ProNorden says:

    So this is the answer to the old question “What would it be like if Catherine Zeta Jones were younger and very interesting and informative?” Ellie

  • Starisan says:

    In 2005 Katrina rolled through the south, at the same time the west coast was hit hard by fires. You never know what other disaster relief victims will be competing for cable and equipment resources. Stage gear strategically, especially OSP stuff, or anything that may require freight. Standardize your network so that a remote office can quickly become a central office. If that doesn’t work, use the Force.
