    Default Internet road rage

    The question is: Do you or anyone you know suffer from internet road rage? In other words, a page loads really really slowly--Are you the type to start hyperventilating and hurling furniture around the room; or are you calm and patient?

    I'm fairly patient. There are cases where I fringe on going bezerk, but that usually has to do with my ISP. They're worse than an insurance company, just soo frustrating to deal with.

    To me it happens rarely but when it does I just sit there and wait
    but if it's taking to long then probably restart or seomthing...

    I still lurk around, you just don't notice.

    When a page loads really slow for me, im usually patient, but if it takes more than 10 minutes a can get really, really mad; i usually start banging on the keyboard and yell at my laptop, lol. But usually i can be patient. i Dont know of anyone who gets Internet road rage, so yeah, it's all good ^^

    It's less of an issue these days when most people have broadband, it was more common back in the modem days. Now it's mostly server issues that provoke internet road rage. When pages reset at random or something like that.

    I'm usually calm and patient.
    While I'm waiting for the page to load, I'd do other things like chat on MSN, go on another site, or read my book.
    If nothing shows up for a while ( like 10-15 mins), I would just give up. I might restart my laptop but I wouldn't get frustrated over it.

    I would like to say that I never have this problem... But admittedly, when I am rushing, for example, to get a hotfix uploaded to a web app, or if I am looking up directions to an appointment to which I am already late, I have been known to get frustrated.

    But it's usually short-lived. Logically, if there's nothing I can do, I have no choice but not to do it, so I find something to do until I can.

    I don't have an issue with the internet on my computer. But I had to fix my mum's computer over the holidays, she has an extremely outdated laptop that has a floppy disk.

    It drove me insane, I forgot how it was like to wait 15 minutes just for the internet browser to load up, that's if it didn't crash half way through, which it did multiple times.

    I used to have dial-up, and it agonizing. Imagine little, 5th grade P-san pounding at the keyboard and screaming curses at the top of her lungs. "God dammit you stupid [bleep]ing computer, let me get on my [bleep]ing AF and watch my [bleep]ing anime. You dumb[bleep] [bleep]." Yup, that was me. Drove my mom insane.

    Now I've got a cable connection. Life is better.

    You've just described me almost perfectly Eris But I don't hurl furniture around, I actually thrash my computer I can't help it, my computer is an ancient piece of trash and I can't afford a new one >.<; So I can't help but get angry and punch it every time the page doesn't load or if the page has an error on it I do the scheduled maitenance for it and even have all that protection for it, but it still sucks >_<; Looks like it's time to get a new one!!(when I have the money).

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    Yes, I have internet road rage. I have a fairly fast computer, so it doesn't happen too often, but when it loads pages sloooowlyyyy, I get really annoyed. I slam the mouse down. I yell "COME ON, YOU STUPID COMPUTER!!!" Sometimes I get so annoyed that I pull its cord from the wall. *sigh*
    You do not want to see me on my grandmother's dial-up. -_-

    i admit, I can get pretty impatient especially when I'm trying to do work.

    I had dial-up for about 5 years before going to broadband, and it was never a problem. Just a few extra seconds a page unless it was a video or flash heavy site of some kind. Then again I'd never experienced the convenience that is "high speed" internet during elementary school. With the stuff I run now, I might've gotten a bit frustrated.

    Can't say I'd go back after being spoiled the past few years, but I haven't yelled at my pc in quite a while.

    I'm patient with loading. It's just when my internet takes a long time to open my email, like for instance 5 minutes, that i get angry.

    Going from cable (in the states) to dial-up (in Australia) was hard. Very hard. I would say I've mostly acclimatized, though. Annoyance flares up only when I've used broadband in Uni and have to come home to this...this, thing.

    SGI is much worse, frankly. Of course he works in a computer shop all day, surrounded by speed and the latest gadgets, and comes home to it XD I can't really blame his fits.

    Well for me it totally depends, because if im kinda busy and doing other things I can kinda just forget about it and make time go faster. But if im bored out of my mind and im waiting for an page to upload yeah I would say I yell and argue with it and possibly cuss and maybe toss the laptop. >.> but not a lot. IM NOT CRAZY!


    Funny how? Funny like a clown? Do I amuse you?

    I'm very impatient when it comes to pages loading slowly, so much so that if a page loads in the timeframe of 1-2 minutes, I'll start cussing and punching my tower, then proceeding to take out the remainder of the anger on innocent woodland creatures.

    Try living on dialup and a 366 computer for 7 years.
    If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.
