    I noticed earlier today that a few websites I went to while at the office seem to be not responding...but yet ping speed was perfectly fine.
    Odd.
    I left the office and while out I went to check my email on my Kindle Fire...Gmail was awfully slow...but then seconds later...just fine.

    So I am sitting here at home now and I start noticing numerous websites are 3/4 unresponsive...but again everything pings fine...and Google is very slow.

    Keep in mind - 3 different networks.

    So as I am surfing around,,,I keep noticing that every few minutes this is happening...so then I start pining google during these periods...anywhere from 30%-50% packet loss. At the same time I am pinging various websites all over - all pinging perfect - 0% loss.


    Then it occured to me...all of these sites have google pieces within them.

    ..Hmm...if I was a part of a major hacking team...taking Google down would halt 2/3 of the internet since so many websites use google services within their homepage.

    Oh c'mon I can't be the only one noticing this.
    Those familiar with "stumble"...I am stumbling numerous sites - each site that has no google component (I can check if it does via ghostery)..they all load as fast as always - but every single site that has any google search assistance - they all load much slower.

    I'm just experiencing random issues with the USMB, everything else seems fine. Just a few minutes ago the site froze up and then wouldn't load, in FF, Lunascape, CometBird and IE.

    Well....it doesn't do it in Chrome. This is odd.
    Take USMB...if I use Ghostery and block the 3 Google apps on this site - the site is blazing fast, an average page loads in about .6 - .7 seconds.
    WITH the google apps - 3-4 seconds.
    Youtube is horribly slow, always waiting on google apps.
    In Chrome - it is fine.
    WTF?

    It is AdBlockPlus.
    I disable it and everything is fine.

    I don't think it is addblockplus. Things have been weird here since they got a new server.

    Looks like some kind of cookie issue developed between the new server and vbulletin.
