Pfft. Kids these days.

(There's nothing wrong with an RTT of 60 to 70 ms per se. For example, if
it were always exactly 65 ms, that would probably be an *excellent* time
source. The problem is the jitter, and as the example of the four possible
paths along the two possible routes shows, even that can, under the right
circumstances, be solved.)
