Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I connected directly to the DSL modem, no router, firewall,
anything in between me and the Internet. The problem still existed.
At that time I determined it was AT&T's fault so we called them
up. Initially the phone call was a nightmare.
"Typically I am really good at understanding an Indian dialect
because the area of Chicago I grew up in was largely an Indian
population. The person on the phone was a bit harder to understand
and I believe the reason was because they had a mix of the Indian
dialect with a distinct southern US draw. Anyways, after talking to
the AT&T tech support person for a few minutes, I started
telling him what was going on and what I had done thus far. He
asked what version of Windows I was using to test and I told him I
wasn't using Windows and instead was using Linux."
