For the last couple of days I’ve been working a little for the NRK, helping them with some Mobile TV stuff they needed to have up and running before the Athens 2004 Olympic Games kicks off later tonight. Because the NRK only have the rights to send the Olympics in Norway, I had to limit who can access their service and who can’t. In the process, I traced a few IP addresses to find the Norwegian operator’s mobile gateways. Here’s the result of one of those traces:

tracert 212.169.96.218

Tracing route to g-001.osl255.netcom.no [212.169.96.218]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

Do you see a bad pattern forming here? I wonder if maybe NetCom‘s customers had a bit of trouble with their Internet connection today.

This weekend the Class 1 World Powerboat Championship is coming to Oslo. I’ll hopefully get my butt down there tomorrow to take some pictures. If I can convince Stine to come with me. I guess I can.

  1. A trace route of less than thirty hops is no real route. A route of two hops is just a path, or a line, if you will. The more hops, the merrier. Lag is only for whineys to complain about. Lag is rad. Lag is cool.

    I think I’m going to serve all my HTML documents this way as well, from now on. Each one will give a 302 redirect to another, which gives one to another, and so on. No document is retrievable with less than twenty redirects, and it is bad behaviour of a client to only remember the last URI for the next request, since 302 is only temporarily.
