The last four to six weeks have been a consistent experience of frustration and maddening delays.

At first I thought it was because of my connection at home, or another of Microsoft's attempts at punishing those of us who weren't drinking the KoolAid for Vista.

Have you been experiencing this phenomenon on the web, or am I just being paranoid?

Are we getting hosed just in time to watch these bastards steal ANOTHER election???
