TorIX is not a place, its actually two switches that form an Internet
exchange. Perhaps you meant 151 Front Street? Do you have your own
suite? Whose suite are you in?

Yes, according to, you advertise that you are "Sage"
level IPv6 qualified individual from Hurricane Electric. If you only
had mentioned that first, no one would have replied to you with such
elementary questions.

That aside, I think you should have started your thread with
explaining the problem you are trying to solve, instead of ranting
about big providers and the ills they cause you. If you are in "torix
space" why aren't you peering at TorIX (I don't see your ASN on the
list)? Out of curiosity, have you contacted anyone off the TorIX
participants list to see if they would be willing to sell IP transit
and peer BGP with you?

If you want a better venting location, try IRC.

Drive Slow (because Cobourg has slow speed limits, especially near the water)
