It is 3.30pm and most of the nodes are full (see link below). I am getting no speed at all on usenet because Slough is in the red (it is not even connecting at 1KB). What is taking up so much traffic today ? Are people watching the Olympics online ?
Yep - I reckon it is! It's like the 'bad old days'
The nodes have cooled off now as all the office workers have stopped watching the sport... Things were holding up better at the start of the week but it looks like people are getting hooked. I wonder how other ISPs are coping?
