Hmm, I forgot to try pinging--pinging is much better today -- first two pings
are like 1800 and 1200 ms, then they settle down to steady numbers around 250
ms. Maybe that's the difference (but what caused the difference--I guess it
could have been something on my end).
Also, seeing 1800 and 1200 ms today, I'm beginning to doubt what I thought I
saw yesterday, did I really see ping times of 6000 to 12000 (vs. 600 to
1200)? Yeah, I'm pretty sure I did, can't remember the 12000's as well, but
the 6000's were definitely a whole "decimal point" (i.e., order of magnitude)
bigger than the lower ping times that I occasionally saw.
