Given that it's taking nearly 3 seconds to ping my ISP's own website, I'm suprised this is even working. Last time I saw performance this bad was when I was only just in range of a wireless access point, and had something like 75% packet loss.

Edit: there's enough latency that on the first attempt, the challenge expired before this was posted! Something is seriously screwed up with the connection here.

Edit: and after editing this, I'm now having problems posting the edits!

(I've also emailed this to you)

Thanks. I came across fear2.mod many years ago (I think via olego), and finally got round to tracking down your website and downloading the rest of your music. Apologies if I did nasty things to your bandwidth.
