    Ohio Road Runner users

    Anyone having issues online gaming tonight? I'm hitting a couple Columbus routers and the latency is skyrocketing. Going from 10ms on the 4th hop, right up to 250ms on the 5th hop. (problem ticket open) So of course, every server I see has horrible ping. NO gaming tonight for me. Gah...

    Remember when people made game demos of flying through Quake 2 single player and stuff like that? Speed runs to make it through the game? Well....anyone found any stuff like that yet? I know the game is new and all but I wouldn't be surprised.
