Weirdly, a speed test on http://www.nzdsl.co.nz/ tells me I'm blazing away. But I can't get any international pages and all my regularly visited forums etc., like this one, are loading veeeeery slooowly. This is on my handheld (ipod) AND my pc, so it isn't the pcs fault. Rebooted the router to no effect, I have two DNS servers (different isp's) so theoretically that shouldn't be the problem.
Guess a half hour or so of fiddling around is in order.
On the trademe computer board some people are saying it's been dead all night. I wouldn't know, being asleep and all. Hopefully this will improve soon...guess I'll go read a book, go to church and then get some work done. Hate not being able to read all my forums and get my mail. :(
