net has shifted timezones

it was good to hear “check the performance (of net) today evening” told to me yesterday. well in the evening we do get connected quite well anyways, so the acid test was to wait till net ka bara nahin baj jaata…

M’kay, the improvements in net access from DCST lab, which is part of GU which sources internet access from ernet.in (in bengaluru) is as follows: –

  • Consistency in showing not much drastic improvement…you might say no improvement at all during evening time i.e. 5pm onwards. one still needed to ‘wait’ for pages to come.
  • Ab ghadi ke bara bajne ke ek ghante pehle se hi net ka bara baj jaata hai…net goes down at 11 pm itself instead of 12 am.
  • Now traceroute and ping packets are blocked in a way that we cannot even figure out how far the packets are going to check which of the servers are down on the line. 202.141.98.225 was atleast all that was shown previously as being the last server down the line before the packets went waste. now it doesn’t show that either…says, “unable to resolve target system name”… kahin DNS ka hi vaat toh nahin lag giya? name resolving toh wahi karta hai na?
  • Net access hasn’t been restored even at morning 7:30 am which is more than half hour beyond the usual time when net service becomes re-available. Morning alarm…totally wasted HMPH!!

I WANT TO GO HOME TO MY UL 900!!! (…given that it works πŸ˜‰ I CAN’T BEAR WITH THIS FUCKED UP CONNECTION (…actually we hardly have a connection πŸ˜› ) IT’S FUCKING FRUSTRATING TO BE NOT ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH MY FRIENDS WHO COME ONLINE AFTER 12am…BASICALLY THE NOCTURNAL CREATURES!! FUCK ERNET!!

  1. Relax dp…

    No net at night .. the hottest time when all friends are online…

    If any of the admin by chance comes across this getting the access will no
    longer be any prob.

    Well his way u can enjoy the weekends more at ur place.. ;).

    • Re: Relax dp…

      admins…hehe….they are busy clogging the bandwidth with maintainence jobs. sir told to write a letter to the univ. heads n comp. centre n all that.

  2. fuck ernet indeed!

    Ernet sucks!!!! and it is also a virus museum. We got DOS nasties from the vaults streaming in through our ancient ernet connection at the centre for studies in social sciences which mostly norton couldn’t deal with because they were so ancient/rare/vague. frantic online search for FProt ensued. Also people insisted on opening files sent through their clunky ernet mail. much formatting and clean installing followed. Finally we shut down all the ernet inboxes at which some of the senior faculty flipped. apparently they’d got used to ernet and for them email=ernet. it was like, what? we have to learn something new?? but we just learned the old way!

      sorry that was me. Rimi. what’s this open id thing?

      • Re: fuck ernet indeed!

        i am still trying to figure out the open id thing.

        the concept is to uniquely identify you as ‘the’ RBC and not confuse you with any other Rimi’s out there without either creating an account or using a method (like providing blog link) that anyone else can duplicate.

        i’ll check the site and see.

        http://openid.net/about.bml

        looks like its not all that fail-safe secure. but do go thru the page.

    • Re: fuck ernet indeed!

      JU uses ernet even now or changed to something else?

      ernet is central point of a large number of university networks and hence the concentration of malware is really really high. sadly the majority of users are from academic field who can’t keep themselves aware and take a few precautions that go a long way in ensuring safe surfing. student der toh kichhu jayna…onno der computer infect hochche hok…nije der assignments gulo vanish hole tokhon joto chachamichi.
      virii infection happens in our lab too. one virus whole lab one av trial full clean…and it cycles back πŸ™‚
      clunky ernet mail…never used…never know. 😦
      email=ernet…hehe some ppl just don’t like choices.

      thanks for the info.
