Is the interweb slowing down?
3/30/2014 | me

Posted on 03/30/2014 11:20:44 AM PDT by Mr. K

I have noticed that Facebook and Outlook mail and You tube are extremely slow this afternoon.

Does anyone else here see this? Is there getting to be too much traffic?

Or is Obama and the NSA watching my computer too close...

I do have a red sticker on my mailbox AND a yellow one- what does that mean?

The Interwebs is just a series of tubes. They can only handle so many bits of data. Once the bits reach critical mass the tubes will clog up and the Interwebs will cease to function.

Incorrect. The Internet is not something that you just dump something on. It’s not a big truck. It’s a series of tubes. And if you don’t understand, those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it’s going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.

Is your computer downloading updates in the background, or is there a full scan for viruses going on? If you have DSL, it can be unpredictably variable. On the weekends a lot of people in yor neighborhood may be at home catching up on their email.

I complained to Time-Warner about an issue of long standing with my service, I was experiencing an apparent throttledown at midnight, every single night, for about a half hour. Signal so weak from the wireless router that devices would drop it inside my house.

They “fixed” it. Now it happens at noon. What gives?

It means they ran out of orange stickers.

Red Sticker = FEMA Deportation

Yellow Sticker = Re-education Camp.

I got that windows 8 virus so things are a bit slower than the old puter. The mouse has to click a couple times to wake 8 up but other than the new technology all is well.

My own loading of websites has slowed down this weekend with no pages loading at all then starting to after it seems to be minutes. It comes and goes. Maybe the NSA is jut doing a virus scan or maybe loading new ones on all our computers

I believe that you are onto the problem here.

With a little over 24 hours remaining in the open enslavement to the Obama administration, the slow-down can be traced to all of the crotchety-old seniors who have never interneted before, that are attempting to enroll in Obamacare before the deadline passes. Not being nearly as smart and wise as seniors from Nevada, (I mean seriously folks, who amongst us really knows what a Bunny Ranch is?),
people who have never ‘chatted’, ‘pinged an IP’ or experienced a ‘blue screen of death’(relax old people, that is not related to your last EKG) cannot be expected to be able to responsibly enroll on their own in this wonderful entitlement program.

I would hope and expect that those who are unable to enroll in OCare due to gross stupidity on their own part, are afforded the opportunity to meet with their regional death panel commission at the earliest possible time so that the internet may be returned to those worthy of living to 2015.

Thank you comrades...
