Hello,

 

Shaw is my transit provider (I use a third-party ISP), and my Internet went out unexpectedly for planned maintenance. Apparently a notice was posted on the 14th.

 

Signing up for e-mail notifications of such outages is an option: but I am not sure how helpful that will be since my current machine is unable to properly render the notification page.

 

Northern Alberta 

 

Attached are two Chromuim profile captures of the page in question. The first is page load, while the second is idle. The page take more than 10 minutes to load properly (gave up after about 12).

 

The 40% idle in the idle profile is misleading due to hyperthreading. I am fairly sure the single CPU core stays saturated.

 

It is a Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz, overclocked to 3.24Ghz.

The GPU is an Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Cedar [Radeon HD 5000/6000/7350/8350 Series] (like 20W card)

Machine can only address like 3GB of RAM, but don't *think* that is the limiting factor.
