VPNs not just for obscurity

VPNs not just for obscurity

Unable to connect to my own website or Cpanel this morning, even though checkers show that both are up, so looks like a routing issue – which a traceroute confirmed: packets go from my ISP (Origin Broadband) to some outfit called Call27 (who don’t even have a working website yet…), and then timeout.

Of course, getting first-level ISP support to understand the issue is like pulling teeth, and once he’d exhausted his script options and my patience, he just passed it on to second-level, with a 24-48 hour response…

Of course further, by the time I’d finished writing this, the problem had been sorted and no routing is being done via Call27 – not that Origin have bothered to tell me..
