The internet sucks. Well, more succinctly: "The internet is run by people, and people suck."

My wife called me at work today complaining that our internet connection was unstable. While this isn't surprising, I suppose she anticipated my next question because she then said "but it only seems to be $game, everything else is working smoothly? Is this Comcast or your firewall causing problems?" I resisted the urge to absolve the firewall immediately of any wrong...
