    Don't know if it's related (I'm with Actrix) but I was playing on-line
    during the wee hours and the game was atrocious with pings in the 2 second
    range. I finished the quest I was currently doing as I was half-way through
    and didn't want to repeat it. Then I started a new game so that I'd be on
    another server to continue questing and it, too, was slow. If anything
    slower. The game crashed due to 'lost connection' a few minutes later.

    So I went to bed and read half of Kurt Vonnegut's excellent new book "Man
    without a country"

    Paraphrased quote from memory from the book:

    "I've been chain-smoking unfiltered Pall Mall cigarettes for nearly 60 years
    now (He's 74 or so) and for the last 20 years the manufacturers have been
    telling me, right there on every packet, that they are going to kill me. I'm
    going to take them to court and sue the for a billion dollars for not
    keeping to their promise. The last thing I wanted was to be alive when the
    three most powerful men on earth are named Bush, Dick and Colon".

    It's a good book.

    welcome to my world since the new "fast" speed came out..... Telecom cant
    handle 3.5mbit, what makes them think ADSL2+ is going to be faster ;)

    First time I've experienced anything like that since I've been on
    3.5/512 and I've been on it for a few weeks now. It only seemed to be a
    problem for about half an hour or so.
