Another frustrating day with my broadband connection - thank you Virgin Media - not!
I got so frustrated with my broadband connection going down I set up nagios2 on my work machine (where the connection is virtually 100% reliable). Incidentally, with ubuntu and nagios2 this was so much easier than I remember when I set it up years ago by hand.
A graph of the last 24 hours is below (over 30% down time). My connection is so erratic I've even had problems posting to the virginmedia broadband help news group where eventually I've been told my power levels are going up and down and asked what my modem lights are doing. I still await an real solution and it is still going up and down like a yoyo.
