Hmm.. Even more interesting is connect.com.au provides all the
inter-office ADSL links at my workplace that decide to self destruct
every Monday morning :[

Interestingly (and I am not defending them here) one of the address
they are having trouble with is a "non portable service provider CIDR
block" allocated to connect.com.au pty ltd.  Presumably at some point,
webone's upstream ISP was connect.com ...  So iinet may just have
discovered that they do not "own" some of the address space that is
used by their customers ...
