Slug-slow surfing

Has anyone else's internet (ADSL specifically) been absolutely fking dead-snail-slow for the past few days?

I can barely even POP email. It is literally unuseable (I had to try four times just to load this blog entry page).

Of course there is never any reduction in fees in the rare instances that Etisalat does admit that there is a fault - god forbid they display any such alien trait as "accountability".

Dubai Media City and Internet City people: if this is what you guys have to look forward to when the TRA proxy arrives, I suggest you start learning Morse Code now. Because it will be a damn sight quicker than sending an email via Etisalat/E2salat.

Well - here I was sitting at work still in the DIC and thinking, bloody hell, this connection's slow!

So maybe it's an across UAE thing?

And if the freezone connection is slow, then I pity the Etisalat users!

I also can't see the Bloglists on either side of the page?

I can see the headings - General Blogs and UAE Blogs - but no links.

"et tu, Brutus" ???

I felt the same this morning, but it's very much normal now.
