Most of my web pages, I have to refresh several times to make it load (including MacNN). Just to make sure it wasn't just my internet, I called a friend who works for one of the cities here and theirs is doing the same thing.

It's kinda frustrating, I'll have to find something else to do on my day off.

Go outside. The interweb is for surfing at work.

What's kind of funny is that my grandmother refuses to use her computer because she is "afraid she will break the internet."

I feel bad for the people who have broken their internet.

You might consider purchasing a new one. Al Gore sells them out of his minivan. They all have "CENSORED" stickers on them, but other than that they're supposed to be just like the normal internets you get at Best Buy.
Do you want forgiveness or respect?

The first time I bought my internet was from Dell...the Internet 8250...and it never worked. It kept saying something about a modem, and I was going to smack it. I didn't need a frickin' modem! I had my Dell Internet...who needs a modem?

Does Al Gore really sell his own internets? Where does he manufacture them?
