I hadn't captured the traffic during one of the floods yet, but now that
you mention it, I'm seeing spikes on my Akamai graphs at the same time
as the spikes on the dialup graphs.

I wonder if some Microsoft PPP update triggered an Akamai bug or some
such (why else would it just be hitting dialups)?

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
