I doubt it's related, but the only thing I noticed is that sometime around 
4am PST, twtelecom seems to have started blocking port 22 somewhere 
between and, since I was in the middle of an 
ssh session when it dropped.  Fortunately, I run a secondary ssh process, 
as well as have several alternate routes available to get around this. 
So I just forwarded the tcptraceroutes and other appropriate info to Cox 
(as this is from my cablemodem at home) since I don't want to really call 
twtelecom's noc at 4 in the morning.
