hmmmm....I dunno about you, but Ascend's Release-of-the-Week is awful
awayway, but last time I spoke with them (Yesterday), they informed me
it's not a good idea to roll back software codes...It's ok to go up in
versions AND feature sets, but not go back. Cisco has a nice feature for
this, however. :)
