The Long Way Round

I actually have two internet connections. For everyday use, I have cable internet with Comcast. Then, a while back, I got a DSL line and five static IP addresses so I could do some of my own hosting again. This leads to the interesting situation that the shortest path between one machine and another in the same room may be fifteen hops and go through San Jose, at least when I'm using the other machine's public IP address.

It's even weirder when the other machine is a virtual machine, and the physical hardware is actually another ethernet port on the first machine.

Tracing route to muck.graybunny.info [206.124.145.180]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
