Back in business

Some people have had problems accessing this site the past couple of weeks. I think we finally hunted down an answer (Thanks to Dan Bowman especially for his detective work). I ended up having to drop the MTU on my Web server down a little bit. That’s easy enough to do–become root, then issue ifconfig eth0 mtu 1200 and you’re golden, at least until the next power failure.
PPPoE adds overhead to transfers that can prevent people under some circumstances from being able to get to a Web site hosted in such an environment. Dropping the MTU a bit gives PPPoE some breathing room.

    Data point: “Index 30” renders very nicely under IE4 from the work site.
