Ours can lag fm 30 mins to 6 hours (and lately there have been a few
24-hour traffic clogs) depending, I suppose, on vger's temperment, and
we're only about 3 hops off of a Sprint backbone, and 12 from vger. I
remember not long ago a 2.1.# kernel kernel release had a bug report
posted to the list before Linus's announcement could clear the list ;-)
A little bit of redundancy comes with the's a classic
