Wierd Route

Beware of things that still call themselves 'Qwest' when you see a
traceroute touch the 14 state (former) US West territory. Qwest sold
all of its "Long Distance Assets" in the region to Touch America, a wholly
owned telecommunications subsidiary of The Montana Power Company.

Folks in the 14 state region that used to buy transit from AS209 now
get that transit from AS3908.

If you sit and hunt, you can find many cases where traceroutes will show
that AS1 and/or AS3561 lies between different addresses where in-addr's
resolve to qwest.net. Probably not all that useful of an exercise though...
