I know a few of you, like me, are on dial-up accounts through Things haven't been going too well for the last few days. Some sites load fine, others are either painfully slow, or won't load at all. My traceroutes show lots of problems all over the map, but most notably in the system. This fits with the internet traffic report which is still reporting a bbn problem in Washington D.C. (100% packet loss However, inch isn't noting that as a problem. They say

"08/08/00 11:31 The slow connections problem continues to be a circuit between Chantilly, VA and Chicago and involves Sprint. This indicates that the circuit must be used for peering (exchanging traffic) between the 2 networks. We've been assured that they have been working on it constantly, as it is affecting numerous customers in the mid-atlantic region."
Either they are missing something, or Sprint owns bbn? Is that right? I guess probably that is the case since VA seems to be about the right location. Man, if you are on the east coast, you really don't want to have a problem between you and MAE-east. Trust me. Arrrrgggghhhh. What about you non-inchers? Any noticable problems lately?
