    Ok so the internet here is officially sucking giant donkey balls. It goes incredibly slow between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (like way slower than dial-up) and it now refuses to load 90% of the sites I visit. I can't get to a search engine to find a proxy address that I can use, could someone shoot me a PM with one pretty please?

    CK5 is pretty much the only site that will load anymore...I think that means it likes you guys.

    In a nutshell it's an address that you put into your browser so that it "looks" like you're going to that site, but in reality you're visiting other sites through that one. Some of the sites work this morning, but hotmail still doesn't and neither does MSN which are the only ways to get my personal e-mail. I want my "technology" fees back.

    Do some traceroutes on the different sites you visit and check the latency on your local routers. If it's high, then complain to your tech people about it.
