I'm seeing a lot of packet loss around HE/peak while attempting to get to or.sstatic.net:

This is causing problems mainly on chat; I'm not sure why nothing else is having problems. Anyone else seeing this behaviour?

Mostly everything else relies on the CDNs and the NY data center. The PEAK website is non-responsive, so I'm guessing their Oregon data center is experiencing issues at the moment (I also noticed the high packet loss). – Tim Stone Jul 24 '11 at 3:59
    
Something similar has been reported by a couple of our users in the UK recently. Are you located there as well? – Cody Gray Jul 24 '11 at 4:06
    
No, Sydney Australia. Sorry, I thought the mtr output was more informative than it actually is. – womble Jul 24 '11 at 4:32

We have seen a lot of reports of the same thing from our monitoring system and have asked Peak about this. I will update this after we have an answer or know more.
