It's Time-Warner, and they are not ignorant.  I think they're 
experimenting.  They are still working out bugs in their internal routing, 
since my v6 routes have an annoying habit of disappearing inside their 
network if I don't do a ping that passes through them every couple of 

Also, it may not actuallly be a /50.  That's what their rwhois says, but 
I haven't done a tcpdump so I don't know what size they're actually 
offering me.
