Hi from 2019 :) Cool Ideas is probably still getting DDOSsed and they probably still struggle with routing.

Nothing is working for me, for 9 hours already. Others report intermittent service or that local is working. Here, nothing nada niente. So frustrating.

The twitch specific BBR relay hasn't been in play for a while now, just the regular TCP accelerator.
Then Twitch is not great tonight. Best I'm getting is 720p and twitch chat is just stuck on "connecting to chat"
