Can someone tell Demon about that, I regularly see round trip delays to 
their NTP boxes of 1S or more!  Yes, ONE SECOND!  From a user on their 
network by ADSL.   It's very much time-of day dependant, reasonable at 
night, terrible duing the workday (weekends are not bad)

Conjestion, traffic shaping?  Who knows, Demon don't if you call them.

"NTP?  Is that like FTP?"  a responce from one of their "Techincal" 
types when I asked a while back...   You could smell the curry cooking 
in the background.
