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 (18.104.22.168), 30 hops max, 38 byte packets
1 navi (10.0.0.1) 0.460 ms 0.465 ms 0.373 ms

3 * r1-fe1-3-100bt.sttls1.wa.home.net (22.214.171.124) 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?
