Well...our connectivity problems out of Pittsburgh have went from
sporadic, skipped bad and worse and are at critical.

We had a customer of ours last night complain of unreachability to a
PEER1 (AS13768) route but for some reason Sprint was advertising it.
That route had nothing to do with sprint originally. Packets were
getting thrown around in the Atlanta area until the TTL finally expired.
It seemed to clear it self up last night, but I think we are seeing some
residual damage here.
