I know I posted this in the " Far side of the internet thread" However I doubt most Windows users know what traceroute is let alone how to use it. No disrespect intended. Linuxers will see the the funny side of this.

 

Run this command in terminal.

traceroute 216.81.59.173

And tell me what you see.

 

 

Hint look at it from line 15 down.

Something wrong happened on my end, there was like 59 lines of code, the 2nd or 3rd line my real speeds (which lowered on the second run), the rest appeared to be pinging (all in "ms"). 

 

Seemed to be more of measuring of my connection than anything. Hope it wasn't pinging all of that time, my ISP express forbids the excessive usage of pinging, or so it says in the contract. 

 

Must have installed the wrong package, but it was what the Terminal suggested. Just keying in...... 

 

 

 

traceroute 216.81.59.173

 

.....there was an error. Evidently the package needed wasn't there.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.

You do know about this?

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl 

This works on windows and linux. Just copy and paste that into terminal.

 

 

 

If you do not have traceroute installed.

sudo apt-get install traceroute

Then try it.

 

 

there was like 59 lines of code

Yes and the funny bits start at line 14.

Yes, that's how much of our Internet content used to be. 

 

 

 

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl 

 

Been some time back since I've seen the Internet like this.

We all know we can make Windows say anything you want by running this.

Dim message, sapi
message=InputBox("What do you want me to say?","Speak to Me")
Set sapi=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")
sapi.Speak message

Well Linux users are not forgoten, Try espeak.

 

To get espeak.

 

 

sudo apt-get install espeak

 

to run it.  type something like in the example remember to use " "

espeak " Bleeping computer rules"

More traceroute.

 

put this into terminal. I guess even network engineers need to have fun.

traceroute -m 254 -q1 obiwan.scrye.net
