Shit Bandwidth

I’ve got the game on in the background (I guess Illinois isn’t doing so well?), but I’m trying to get some work done at the same time. For some reason, my cable connection (shared by everyone on the physical line) is good to go… yet the T1 running into the office is slower than a motherfucker. I’m talking about minutes of lag in a shell.

How can I be expected to get anything actually fucking done under these conditions?
