Today, I finally got the internet to work properly. It was a battle, but all is well and html is joining hands and singing joyfully with several equally joyous torrents. (all completely legal and non-copyrighted works, of course) It was a weird issue. I've got a nice, healthy cable connection, usually around 4-5 MB/sec, but every time utorrent was doing its thing, nothing else would work. Like _nothing_. Even throttled back to 256k, not even google could get through. Still not sure what the _actual_ problem was, but I'll take the win.
