Uhh, I'm not so sure frii.com is on Sprintlink. Here's the tail from
traceroute:

8 bordercore3-hssi0-0.WillowSprings.mci.net (166.48.33.249) 15 ms 18 ms 21 ms
9 core2.Denver.mci.net (204.70.4.193) 38 ms 38 ms 38 ms

12 io.frii.com (204.144.241.3) 88 ms 79 ms 47 ms

Besides, ping is giving me RTTs of aroudn 208ms, and I don't notice any
lag in the clients here. It just depends where you topographically fall --
some sites are just going to take longer to get requests through.
