Tall ships (porthole)

Weird routing

At the moment, I can only get to LiveJournal via a mobile Vodafone 3G connection - when I try my landline Virgin Media ADSL link, the packets get stuck in a routing loop.

That's not the weird part. The weird part is both connections at one point go through the same routers (marked in bold)!

So, who do I pester about this?

Edit: at some point over the past day this mysteriously fixed itself. Of course, something else had to disappear from this connection to maintain the cosmic balance of the routing tables :(

I feel a bit mean every time I post on a mailing list pointing out that a previous message warning of terrible things if you enter a code on your phone or you don't delete a specific file is actually a hoax.

This week's one, which I've received via two unreleated sources, is the #90 hoax.
