The seeds of dislike are growing for my new ISP.

Problem #1
Disconnections: a whole lot. Here are all the disconnections in the last 12 hours:

Jan 12 06:12:11 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup
Jan 12 06:23:05 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup
Jan 12 06:33:09 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup
Jan 12 06:38:25 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup
Jan 12 06:48:44 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup
Jan 12 06:55:05 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup
Jan 12 07:26:37 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup
Jan 12 08:12:03 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup
Jan 12 08:43:48 bender pppd[2955]: Modem hangup


All late night and early morning is like that.

Problem #2
Crappy connection. This never happened with my old ISP. Observe the ping times in the 2nd hop compared to the 3rd:

2 border-gw.kennett.net (208.248.0.1) 119.374 ms 127.887 ms 119.848 ms
3 345.ATM1-0.GW4.PHL1.ALTER.NET (157.130.8.133) 719.663 ms 609.253 ms 644.758 ms


This isn't so bad for other routes, but I can't even listen to the crappy low-bandwidth version of nectarine anymore.

Re: Hi whats up??? lol

Hey, nice to see you back. Your website is still broken, though. The links are to your local filesystem (the ones that say C:\Windows\...) You need to upload the images to the site, and link directly to them (e.g. A HREF="foo.jpg")
