    Having a hard time with Lantronix

    It's not so much a fault, but it requires some sublime stability for the TCP connection for it to be usable in any non-frustrating capacity. I recommend you to RDP into a dedicated box somewhere, and then use it off there -- obviously, the lower the latency, the better.

    Do you use a VPN for your normal internet browsing?

    I'm usually working if I'm online, so I guess 24/7 VPNs here too, yes. Laptops/phones are permanently vpned as well.

    Psychz Networks adds ChinaTelecom & CN2

    +1, and even if you get past LAX -- there's no way to fix internal congestion that is on their last mile backbone. That was a losing battle when we tried it, I can't imagine things have changed any lately.

    Shell command to query ARIN for CIDRs from SAN

    ARIN's IRR db is very, very sparsely populated. For people caring about IRR at all, querying RADB is probably your best bet. You can also use the RIPE RIS API if you want to know the prefixes actually announced instead of registered, works very well.

    Why Don't Providers Do This One Simple Thing ... To Make More Money?

    Voluntary pre-funding is NOT refunded, yes -- this is not just us, if you read up you'll see other people doing the same. Additionally, most of our brands do not accept pre-funding PRECISELY for this reason. No money was stolen, it's still in your account as credit. If this is not the case...

    Acceptable time to wait for ticket response?

    What do you tell people you do for a living?

    I say I work in networking, haven't had anyone ask for more specifics so far. Seeing as I pretty much push packets for a living these days, it's not inaccurate either :p

    Why do providers not add your data to your IP (SWIP)?

    People only SWIP larger blocks than /29s because it's a requirement from ARIN to justify for further IP space. On singular /32s, that incentive is no longer in place -- do the math.
