    I usually don't play much during the Spring and Summer, most of my gametime for UO is in the Winter month's.That being said what the hell is up with all the connection losses I have a very good internet connection and it seem's I am back playing in 99/00 with dial up, waiting to get blackholed again ,and please don't tell me to run a tracerroute that doesn't help in the least bit as I can play other games and surf without a problem besides who looks at them anyways *walks off soapbox turn's and kick's the soapbox*

    And a few of us had very little problem until about the time of th invasions starting...don't know if that could have anything to do with it, but it's still an interesting coincidence.

    Squirrels.... I blame the Squirrels.... Apparently for Squirrels and Racoons... The cable internet wires give off some sort of waves I'm told... This attracts the squirrels to them and the squirrels then chew them.... My response was.... so if you know this then why don't you make the coating on these wires something NASTY Like Jalapeno or Habanero peppers or something...... or fix it so the wires don't give off waves... Gotta be cheaper than having me call once a month for the tech to come out and replace lines......

    Yes, it was this guy, the little sneak. See how he chewed and scurried off? http://videobam.com/fCJhl

    (I took that a few years ago. By coincidence I came across it this morning when looking for something else.)

    Atlantic's been very Laggy lately. In fact, not only laggy but with 3-5 second screen freezes. Not a good thing to have happen when you are fighting Invasion Captains. :(

    Blame it on greed. When you own the rights to all cable in a given area (let me think, what was that word again, oh yea -monopoly) then - (since people like you and I have no choice but to keep paying whatever you ask) there's no earthly need to take your big profits and give them back to us in the form of infrastructure upgrades. Only healthy competition will force our telecoms to be "better" for us, and competition is what they lack. Monopolies WERE against the law, but not anymore. Welcome to the world we currently live in.
