Clock-watching, Chinese style

Have you ever noticed how, if you work in a Chinese office building, after about 4pm your Internet connectivity tends to get unworkably slow?

It's because everybody, but everybody, is going to spend their last 2 or 3 hours at work noodling idly around the Internet (and the higher the bandwidth use, the better - an ideal time to download a pirated movie to watch at home later tonight!!).

Me, I would never be so selfish as to tie up precious bandwidth by browsing on YouTube for an hour at a time! Just being able to get into Blogger would be enough for me. God, it was a LONG WAIT, though.....
