Apparently, my ISP has been having issues today due to the high volume of election-related net traffic. Here’s the skinny from their support site:
Based on yesterday’s leadup, today we are guaranteeing an extraordinary level of traffic as the US heads to the polls and the commentary/liveblogging begins. As we also host several of the official election supervisor sites for large counties in Florida, no doubt those sites will be seeing a tremendous upswing as well.
So that’s kind of cool. It makes me feel somehow connected to history in the making. Although, I get the feeling that election supervision in Florida must be a futile job … like proctoring a literacy exam at Texas Tech or something.
