    Well you certainly couldn't blame aol for all of it. Looks like after the 7th hop you're off their network, and then it's Cogent bouncing you all over.

    For what it's worth, from my dialup account I get there in 15 hops with only the last six being on Cogent.

    Takes me 13 hops to get to verifast.net, with the last 6 being cogent and the others alter.net and my ISP's network.

    I don't think there are that many dumb people, but I could be wrong. I was wrong once, but that was a mistake.

    Just AOL, I have AOL one computer, ATT on another, ATT is much better, and is actually cheaper.
