    unreliable on one of my systems. It also identifies a number of things that

    So far since making the changes I have not experianced any lock ups or freezes.

    OK for me.

    Well, maybe not, but I sure got a lot of text in the window that popped
    up when I accessed that site!

    Were you fully clothed at the time?

    This is weird; when I tried to access it, I got a notice saying that the
    server didn't exist. When I tried a traceroute, I got a notice that it
    didn't exist.

    Now, I get the page. i wonder whether the server is always up or not.

    It's working for me too; it appears to possibly be a DSL node, which
    might explain why I couldn't connect earlier.

    Because dire things could happen.

    What makes you think this might be DSL?

    Just wondering... not trying to be contentious...

    I don't see anything in the traceroute or whois that would lead to that
    conclusion... and the ping times over the nearest non-jenika node are
    less than I'd expect from dsl.

    (Matthew: did you expect the Spanish inqusition? :-) )

    Traceroute returns the following:

    20 router.jenika.com (65.102.135.166) 83.113 ms 77.686 ms 98.257 ms
    21 orange.jenika.com (65.102.135.161) 83.519 ms 80.327 ms 79.379 ms


    Whois for either IP address returns the following:

    U S WEST Internet Services USW-INTERACT99-2BLK (NET-65-100-0-0-1)
    65.100.0.0 - 65.103.255.255
    Jenika Inc USW-JENIKA (NET-65-102-135-160-1)
    65.102.135.160 - 65.102.135.167

    That eight-block IP address range is typical of a static IP assignment
    for DSL or Cable modem. Although Qwest does offer cable modem service
    in certain areas, it is much more heavily into DSL.


    Whois for the netblock returns the following:

    OrgName: Jenika Inc
    OrgID: JENIKA
    Address: 18612 176th Place SE
    City: Renton
    StateProv: WA
    PostalCode: 98058

    NetRange: 65.102.135.160 - 65.102.135.167
    CIDR: 65.102.135.160/29
    NetName: USW-JENIKA

    Note that the NetType is "Reassigned"? Another indicator.

    Really? Asking Michelle to confirm that he is Mike is bigotry? Then so
    is asking jdoggy if he is Beachboy.

    The only bigotry is being displayed by Mike who, apparently, is ashamed
    to admit that he is now Michelle!
