ISP from hell.

So I've been fighting 6-12s latency and 80% packet loss from my ISP, the appropriately-named IStop. While waiting for packets to arrive, I decided to check out their network status page, and then I had to catch my breath from laughing so hard.

I was going to leave excerpts here, but you really need to see the whole thing. The newest entires are at the top, so start reading the status page from the bottom.

Since they may have once again fallen off the 'net when you read this, I've saved a copy of the log.

Subscriber to the NANOG list will understand when I note that IStop is Ralph Doncaster's company.

I'm going to find a new ISP tomorrow. If you're in Ottawa and have opinions about IGS, Cyberus or Magma, lemme know.

So, now that you've posted to LJ I can log into IRC, but in a cruel twist of fate, YOU *can't.* :)

Holy God, are these guys ever fucknozzles. I've seen dyndns sites run off modems which had better uptime than that.

Ah, but looking at the bottom of the saved log, I see that they now have access local to me! I could use them!

Nah....

I like your new photo. :)
