Either way, if my ISP couldn't ping best.com in less than a few
milliseconds - I'd be gone!  Best.com has somewhere in the neighborhood of
five (5) fiber optic T3 lines and ANYONE should be able to get to them
FAST!  If his 'ISP' couldn't get to them in less than 2000ms then I think
the joke is on us and this is another excuse.  No one would be dumb enough
to have an ISP that couldn't even ping one of the fastest ISPs in the
country in less than a few milliseconds.

I don't mean to give the Bovine / Distributed people grief but these delays
and excuses are beginning to sound rather ridiculous.
