Ping!

British Telecom is sending an engineer out on Monday. Meanwhile, the results below are normal for those times I am connected, but lately I've been running about 30% packet loss.

$ ping google.com

Meanwhile, even for a voice call and the router disconnected, the static on the line is terrible.
