Lovely to have you with us

Return from Euro-IX Berlin I don’t know whether it’s just hotel living or the exposure to different cultures but it’s always nice to come home after a trip overseas.

The Berlin Conference – Euro-IX Berlin

My name is Harry Palmer – Euro-IX Berlin Sunday was a grey day in Berlin and the stark concrete surroundings of the Olympic Belltower provided an atmospheric background for a short video. The Belltower, incidentally, was the British Rugby Club clubhouse in Berlin. A suitably indestructible place for rugby players to get drunk (and play […]

Cost of transit versus peering cc @lonap

Transit costs plummeting but not as fast as peering Last time I looked at transit costs I was paying something like 60pence/Mbps, admittedly only for a 1Meg commit.
