having built an ISP or two in pakistan, PTCL (Pakistan Telecom) is not the sole provider of bandwidth to the country, although it likely carries the bulk of traffic to the country. operationally, there are a number of jurisdictions which filter content and connectivity on a variety of basis. adjusting the BGP announcements is a fairly quick and sure way to hobble connectivity to specific content. although, it is quickly bypassed by shifting the content to other addresses and domain names. i'm sure that this was an accidental leakage, and that appropriate corrections were/are taken in due course. -- Jim Mercer [email protected] +971 55 410-5633 "I'm Prime Minister of Canada, I live here and I'm going to take a leak." - Lester Pearson in 1967, during a meeting between himself and President Lyndon Johnson, whose Secret Service detail had taken over Pearson's cottage retreat. At one point, a Johnson guard asked Pearson, "Who are you and where are you going?"
