So, looking at the hop that he can make that I can't, it's something to do with:
Think someone messed up a routing table at cryptic? Or is it just some of us being filtered for some strange reason?
Same here, bos06.atlas.cogentco.com is the last step. Another couple of people from my ISP are in the same boat.
