Major network suckage today. At around 3:00 am this morning the network at
Condo Conner dropped. All attempts to get out didn't get past the DSL
unit and a trace from outside
(fortunately my roommate
works at night as a system
administrator) showed that traffic to Condo Conner was not getting past a
router in Miami.
Fast foward to noon today. Can't traceroute to my colocated server. Can't
ping it. Yet Spring can get her mail. Uh oh. A
quick telnet to port 80 and yes, I can bring up a web page.
Poking around I'm seeing major network problems with my provider. Inside, I
can ping some sites, other's I can't. Some sites I can traceroute to,
others I can't. One moment I can ping but can't telnet. Then I can telnet.
From outside again, it's hit or miss if I can ping or traceroute back to
Most things are working and that's what makes this more annoying that if it
was all down. I'll be going along and wham! can't get there.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
