TimeWarner is making YouTube unusable, again

For the last week or so, I’ve been very frustrated trying to watch anything from YouTube on my RoadRunner account at home. The tracert suggests that somewhere between Montgomery (Cincinnati) Ohio and Columbus, Ohio they’re dumping packets on the ground.

Up until today, I’d been using HideMyAss.com to get around their problem, but this evening, even that isn’t working. Example – a 3 minute long video of Mike Rowe / Dirty Jobs has taken over half an hour to play. Normally, I wouldn’t wait that long, but I just wanted to see how long it would take to complete.

Anyone have any other proxy ideas for me while TimeWarner discovers and (hopefully) fixes the problem?
