Sometimes it might even take a turn for the worse, with some of us experiencing leisure sickness (that thing that happens when you catch a cold on your first day off).

Working day and night…

Last night, 5 of us were on deck after a difficult wake up call in the middle of the night. Regardless of the time, Greg / Pierre-Laurent / Dumè / Seb and I were up from 2 am until 4, in the aftermath of a BGP incident. The main particularity of the internet is its capacity to reconfigure itself in case of a connection breakdown. This feature, inherited from the early military days of the network, aimed at making it always functional. To achieve this, each router dispatches the list of networks within its reach and management to those it is in communication with : this is the BGP protocole (Border Gateway Protocol).
