MalwareFor the past month or so I’ve been having trouble with the internet slowing down after seven o’clock at night I’m not the only one who’s noticed it I was very amused following a tech support thread where the Comcast guy was trying to blame the modem. Yes that’s right folks planned obsolescence is now time sensitive.

For the most part I’ve been trying to ignore it as the nuisance it is. After all one shouldn’t be spending the entire evening surfing the internet anyway, right?

But despite this every now and then I have a last minute thing to do and then it’s murder.

The frustrating thing is that most pages I use seem to have been speeding up… most everything except WordPress. So here I was late on my deadline for today’s strip. I had just finished it and was trying to upload it on time so I could go to bed.

It was like trying to suck a basketball though a straw. In the end it took me nearly 45 minutes to upload a 50k image and post it. It almost makes me miss the halcyon days of dialup.
