    Man Orcon bitstream is abysmally slow tonight. I went to play my game and it
    was absolutely unplayable. Ok, I thought, read some webpages. I went to NZ
    City and clicked a link and waited...... And waited...... And waited.

    It finally loaded and I read it. Clicked another and waited........ And gave
    up.

    I haven't had a connection this bad since I had a 28kbs modem and lived in
    the sticks.

    Mine too until around 5 mins ago when the speed suddenly returned to normal.

    There was a similar slowdown with Orcon UBS early this morning that came
    right around 9:30am.

    Yeah, mines come right a couple hours ago as well so I managed to get a bit
    of game-play in at the expense of sleep. The finace went to bed disgusted
    and cursing the orcon management. I wish she wouldn't practice that voodoo
    stuff, it makes me nervous. ;-)

    How long do we have to put up with this shit?

    Cheers,

  6. In case anyone missed one of the threads, all the new threads since
    December are below. Quite an impressive list. I was going to go back to
    the start of the Orcon news server problems, but thought 2002 was a bit
    far to go. So, how many new threads (approximately) were started about
    Orcon in recent years...

    Threads in 2002 - 40 (From January 2nd when my archives start)
    All of 2003 - 15
    All of 2004 - 80
    So far in 2005 - 32

    And the most recent, including most of the UBS issues and ongoing NNTP
    issues...
