A constant source of infuriation. And when you can get it to work (tunnelling the login servers over 
an HTTP proxy elsewhere) the incumbent ISP makes sure it braindamages your UDP latency enough that 
it's horridly unreliable.

"Sorry sir, we make no guarantees about our quality of service. You can access Google? It's working 
fine then"

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability
to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable
for their apparent disinclination to do so." -- Douglas Adams
