06:43 pm - Preliminary results of my ping experiment
I've been running tests of ping times and the results look like I'm right. Ping times do seem to fit an exponential probability distribution, which also means that the facile statistical analysis that mtr and ping now do are misleading in terms of predicting what future ping times are likely to be or in saying something about how much 'jitter' a network path really has.
