Dunno.  Mentioned it on the slony IRC and was told there was heavy 
packet loss from a switch in Panama.

Seems fine today of course, but it seems like we shouldn't forget the 
important major hosted PG sites as well in this conversation if we're 
worried about outages. :)

Heh

There are definitely some parts of Telstra that have a consistency like 
that, but for *this* particular part of Telstra, it's the backbone 
between the rest of Telstra (and thus most of Australia) and the outside 
world.

Like, our routers are the end point off of the international connection, 
and we provide the bandwidth to the rest of Oz.  Doesn't mean we're 100% 
perfect, but things are past the "mission critical" status and into 
national "critical infrastructure" if that helps.  ;)

Regards and best wishes,
