VTC fucked up the routing again:

Wonder how long it'll take them to figure this one out. They don't seem to have a whole lot of clueful techs. Their typical plan for solving network problems like this usually involves sending out new DSL modems to all their customers; by the time they've done that, the routing tables have usually fixed themselves.

Mind you, I can't be too critical; in my day I made plenty of routing errors, but usually under the influence of alcohol. It's too early in the day for VTC's network techs to be buzzed... or is it?
