This is in the spirit of kickin' 'em while their hurtin'.

We have several remote sites which use Megapath for their connection to 
the internet.  Megapath now tells us that they have begun blocking all 
ICMP packets traversing their network (DSL).  This wouldn't be so bad, 
but our dumb terminals ping for a route before connecting  :-(

Anyone else have a story reflecting on the wise men from Redmond?
