Cogent have been broken since Monday. They apparently lost an OC-192
with AT&T, making the rest of their network run like a dying dog. I was
seeing some crazy latency cross the North-East on Tuesday and Wednesday,
but it mostly cleared up yesterday - Tuesday was bad, so I had them
turned off all day from Monday ~8pm.

They've not yet called me back in response to my calls requesting a
credit, or a reasonable explanation why the run a degraded service for
four days.
