I HATE MY ISP SO FREAKING MUCH LIKE SERIOUSLY I'VE BEEN PLAYING AOE 2 AND MY ISP  DROPPED ME TWICE - TWICE - IN THE LAST TWO DAYS. Not for any extended or noticeable period of time, but just long enough drop me from the game I'm playing. It's the biggest let down ever, to be in a hard struggle and just tip the game in your favor, only to have your ISP drop you. Then the rest of your team just sort of looks at each other as they realize that the tables have probably turned due to the loss of a teammate.

And I guess it's not the game either. I often play videos on YouTube, only to have them stop buffering just long enough for me to have to refresh the browser to get the video to continue playing. Then I have to watch the ad again. I always blamed it on google just sucking at managing it, but perhaps it's my ISP that is to blame. I can just barely tolerate it with Internet browsing, but when it's a 30-60 minute time investment wasted for 4-6 people, that's when it really sucks. I'd change services, but the only alternatives where I live are dial-up or satellite. I suppose I could probably use my phone service too, but data is prohibitively  expensive through most carriers. Yes, I'm playing the victim card and throwing a fit. I'm unhappy and want someone else to come fix my problems for me.

And so all that's left is to rage at a backwards system led by a company who has a monopoly and no incentive to change things, especially where I live. That alone is about enough to make me want to move. At least in other parts of the country it's a bit less horrendously bad...

"Lindale"Pain is your friend!

What an absurd thing to say.

Pain is my friend, and she specifically said that she hates curmudgeons that are superfluous.

I dunno, I think Redundant Cudgel sounds better.

Say that again, and you will face the full might of the Klingon Empire!

Pain builds character, and character builds honor!

It's ok. We manage to stay out of each other's way most of the time.

Nobody should have to suffer an internet outage in this day and age, not even a momentary one.

It's barbaric.

We suffered a countrywide cable outage New Years Eve.

Get on our level.

At least in the Disunited Queendom, broadband internet a basic human right.
