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 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124, 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.
