    * Wacky Routes To Serverbeach...

    Could someone please explain to me why this route is so crazy?

    http://www.digitalravers.com/serverbeach.jpg

    I live in the san fernando valley and I ping 100 ms to my server. But at my work in Santa Monica I only ping 50 to my server. So my question is... why is this route so funky?

    could possibly do with your ISP at home vs. your work connections routing?

    www.traceroute.org is a great site where you can trace from around the world.

    i'm doing a 186ms round trip from europe.

    On another note, they only appear to have connectivity from Southwestern Bell, because they have no ASN, and their IP space (through SWBELL) is only announced under Southwestern Bell's ASN from what I can tell.
