You are right. I read about those ``abnormal'' pings, but I forgot to
test a different program yesterday... It's so bad that I often fail to
do the elementaries when it's so necessary :-(

Oh yeah :-) That's common of me, too :-) However, I must say that
trying to solve the ``problem'' which actually was not a problem made

Internet access.
