Frigging routing loop

Well, now. Google isn’t reachable – which shouldn’t be such a big deal, except that most Web pages these days make our browsers fetch scripts and content from the Google domain.  Curiously, my bank is online; as is my hosting provider.  My favorite machine tool porn site, Glacern Machine Tools, is also up. But no BBC, no Al Jazeera. WTF?

It’s partly down to a frigging routing loop (below), plus some modulation scheme jiggering so I need to dial down to EDGE rates to post this.

effing-routing-loopNow how does a telco manage to get itself into a routing loop?  On purpose.  Pack sheet, oo.  Makatulog na nga muna…


… Nah, it’s probably not a DOJ takedown.
