Re: A new record?

I once ran ping for hours on a newly-installed proNet-10, with
similarly frightening results. My host, a lightly-loaded VAX-11/750,
was pinging itself because it was the only host on the ring. Amidst
thousands of 20 msec round-trip times, one ping returned---out of
sequence---after 11.5 seconds!

Where could it have hidden for that long? I assume it was parked in an
mbuf somewhere; a three-million kilometer detour seems unlikely...
