  1. It seems Elli was the only one with problems. From where does she connect, how is her internet? Could be interesting for her to know why the other didn’t have problems: Distance to LL servers, route, type of connection, speed, latency, wired or wireless …


    • Lamp and Elli are married in RL and they live in the Florida Keys. They do use to have problems during the hurricanes season, but I don’t know how it was for them yesterday, as the collision of Lamp with the island was strange, as if he had lost control, but he didn’t say anything about.

      • Maybe he was on the RL toilet during the collision. 🙂

        Hmmm, married … oh my. If they are on DSL they are stealing bandwith from each other since they share the same connection. Back when I was still active hubby knew he had to leave the internet while I was racing. Now with the fibre it’s much cooler; we both get the full speed up and down. I don’t know what kind of service they have in the Florida cayos. It’s mostly muddy ground, would be easy and cheap to put in some fibre connection from Miami to Key West. But problems during hurricane season? OMfG, are they on some mobile internet shit? And because Trump doesn’t like Huawei, Americans don’t get G5? 😦

        Maybe not enough people living in the keys to make economical sense for the ISP monopoly. But in our complex we have only 117 units and still two fibre companies digging trenches and laying down their fibres independently from each other. Into every home! But you know how it works – respectively how it not works – in America. :/
