i'm ready to break something.

this fucking internet connection makes me want to kill. i was downstairs and things were working fine. i move upstairs to my bedroom and the connection barely works. then i try testing some things to see if maybe it's just moonunit. so i try downloading some things that were working downstairs, but alas, they barely start to download and then stop. let me just say, for the record, that @home can fucking suck my left nut. goddamn i hate it.

right now i am considering plugging in the modem and dialing out, cause at least i will get 28.8 without any problems.

i check my current pings and they are all over 500. starting with the first hop outside of my house. and they tell me at home is not at fault. bullshit.

patrick@moonunit:~ $ /usr/sbin/traceroute livejournal.com
traceroute to livejournal.com (, 30 hops max, 38 byte packets
1 navi ( 0.460 ms 0.465 ms 0.373 ms
2 * * ( 898.958 ms
3 * r1-fe1-3-100bt.sttls1.wa.home.net ( 904.815 ms 1087.140 ms

look at those goddamn pings. is there a problem? i think so. what happened to those lovely 30 ms pings i was getting? what could possible be causing this? can there really be so many people on my node at 1:40 in the morning that it causes 1000 ms pings? feh on @home.

so, i have been reading livejournal with w3m, but i desire graphics. sigh. can i get dsl yet?

15 ms pings from here.... us west hasn't been sucking in awhile. is only @home available at your house?

currently, @home is the only choice here. i would get something else in a second if it was offered. this is not worth the money at all.

maybe i will plug in the modem and use dial up. hrm...

@home problems
I'd make 100% sure it isn't a problem on your end. Did you make your own network cables? Do you have any premade ones? I'd try plugging a machine directly into it, UNPLUGGING (not using the little on off button) the cable modem, plugging it back in and trying a few different cables. Perhaps even try with two different machines.

Once you've 100% ruled out it being your problem, you can call them and bitch. @home does not support home networks, so by removing your network and verifying the error persists, they can't make any noise.

If you still have problems, ask to talk to a supervisor or ask for your money for this month back.

And if none of that works, I'd suggest contacting the better business bureau. I know several people with DSL who have had endless problems getting their DSL installed, but upon contacting the better business bureau, they got their lines up w/in a few days. I imagine it would work just as well with worthless cable access.

Good luck.

    Is Bigfoot Actual or made up? For over 4 hundred a long time, there are actually reporting’s of a man like creature that is entirely coated in hair.

    Sasquatch is a big deal to me every year, and I don't plan on missing it any time soon. But seriously, the lineup gets stronger and more interesting every year. I can't wait until next year!

    Oh MAN. I didn't even look into Sasquatch this year and I'm glad I didn't, because I wouldn't have been able to go. I've never known and liked so many of the bands playing.
