I really don’t know what to do. I’ve let this week pass by without updates because I’m too pissed off.
My connection works perfectly. Dreamhost says that my server is working perfectly too, and I believe them. The problem is somewhere in between — the host with IP address 22.214.171.124 (= CogentCo gateway) for me — and there’s nothing neither me nor them can do about it.
I can’t even move my site elsewhere, because a complete backup, at this speed rate — 15KB/s in the (Europe) morning and 5KB/s in the (Europe) evening — would take about seven months.
Now: is it normal that, after two weeks (at least) of persisting issues, traffic from No Fat Clips!!! is still forwarded through a broken route? Wasn’t the Internet Protocol designed to find the best available route between two hosts? Does this means that Cogent is the only available option?
Sorry for the rant, but there’s little more I can do right now. In fact I could post stuff, even tho’ I wouldn’t be able to watch it myself! The irony…
