I can saturate my 2Mb line too - quite impressive. I'm also connected
to the same ATM network as Joe (which I find bizarre):
$ traceroute router.tao.org.uk
traceroute to router.tao.org.uk (188.8.131.52), 64 hops max, 40 byte packets
1 router.Awfulhak.org (184.108.40.206) 1.296 ms 1.515 ms 1.059 ms
2 router.tao.org.uk (220.127.116.11) 41.719 ms 42.182 ms 42.120 ms
I live in Amersham (North West London) and Joe's in Brighton...!
