> how many people on this list use easynet for an internet provider etc...

Somewhere I do some work for have an easynet line, good solid 2mb.
Very handy for ftp.uk.freebsd.org and storm :) It's actually faster
inbound than the Easynet E1 I used (carried by Energis).

I am jealous of those traceroutes though! I have an extra router
showing between myself and the nearest neighbour. (I also found that
setting larger traceroute packets with 'traceroute <anywhere> 1459'
adds another hop).

traceroute to router.tao.org.uk (212.135.162.49), 64 hops max, 1459 byte packets

There's a lot of redundancy in the 217.32 routers it seems,
they often multipath.
