Some of you might remember me whining about a nasty managed.com routing issue a while ago. I would like to clear managed from this: as it turns out, I was at fault after all. A typo in hosts file was making the resolver return a wrong IP addy (195.xxx instead of 192.xxx), but it was so damn elusive and unobvious that I only spotted it after a month.
Whichever previous issues I had with managed, I don't have them now. All in all, they've been giving me excellent service.
