It’s a slow night

Usually it’s OK but tonight our Broadband Internet is running a little slow.  After eating dinner while watching a couple of episodes of South Park, we plopped down in front of our PCs and played us a little World of Warcraft.  At one point I had to logout and then back in because I lost some communication in the game and I couldn’t see Barina’s character move around anymore.  She was just stuck in mid-cast of a spell.  Now I’m surfing about and I’m getting lots of time-outs and slow loading.

If we were in mainland China this would be a normal thing, but Hong Kong isn’t restricted by them yet.  Let’s hope it stays that way for a good long while too.

Another weird thing that maybe someone can help me with is that when I go to a web site for the first time each day, Firefox tells me it can’t find the page.  Clicking Retry or Refresh makes the page come right back up, but it’s really annoying.  Especially for sites that link to other domains when you submit comments or other things.  It really tends to mess up the whole posting process.   So if there is a setting or registry change I can make to give Firefox a retry before erroring, please let me know.

Well, it’s morning in St. Louis, MO and nearing Midnight here in Hong Kong.  I’m going to go curl up in bed with my Nintendo DS….

    Someday I’ll get a Nintendo DS, but for now I’ll be satisfied with my core 2 duo upgrade. :P
