Verizon DSL: May be the suckiest internet on earth (other than dialup.)
Just as a quick sidebar, I was trying to do some finishing up with some WordPress stuff and then StevenBao.com (this site) and FuryLIVE hosted sites just timed out on me. Nobody else had this problem, so I checked my modem stuff and recreated my connection parameters. It worked afterwards.
Nothing to say but to blame Verizon.
