I didn't buy it... it was a present from a guilty former employer when
he didn't give me the permanent position he'd promised me when I joined
the company after graduation. Also got O'Rielly's HTML and XHTML, which
my girlfriend has since lost... *grr*

Yup. The machines on hops 11-24 aren't answering the traceroute
packets, but are passing them on. Possibly a routeing loop if you'd
normally expect to see fewer hops there.

Here it went th next router went wihtout responding for a while (it may
have been rebooting).

!X means the router administratively prohibited your packets from
passing.  ie: it disallows traceroutes.  Try connecting to a service on
that machine, eg: "telnet 195.153.113.229 80".  That stands a better
chance of working.

Incidentally, the traceroute man page contains a couple of good examples
of "funny" outputs.
