If that's all actual hardware and not just some kind of VM cluster then I'll eat these bits.

doing a full traceroute gives you these:

60 please.try.again.tracerote.to.obiwan.scrye.net (206.214.251.185) 149.073 ms 142.306 ms 142.216 ms
61 read.more.at.beaglenetworks.net (206.214.251.190) 164.372 ms * 388.281 ms

(yes, 61 steps from my machine.)

The followup appears to add in the crawls from Empire and Jedi...
