FFS ORCON!  I mean ... seriously.  10pm exactly tonight EVERYONE WHO USES ORCON IN OUR GUILD GOES OFFLINE.  JUST ORCON USERS!  Pull your finger out.  Schedule your "infrastructure guesses" for the AM!

Sheesh.

I concur!


Yep it's terrible.  Wait, whoa ... look at the "Network Status" update on the Orcon page ... not!   (sarcasm FTW!)

*edit*  I think their mice are on strike?

I fix stuff!

I guess most major road/bridge maintenance would be carried out at night, when traffic is at it's least.

what's the excuse tonight dearest duncan?

While it shows 6.50mb/s it took about 30 seconds to get the thing going and about 2mins to finish it as it kept dropping off then restarting. Anything west and anything to japan seems to be sad for me.

I just did a speedtest to Vancouver too and it worked perfectly first time. Was expecting it to be worse to be honest.
