Some of this is because his poor machine is taking the world's bandwidth
through a single 28.8K modem.  Even with exceptionally high bandwidth on
my end, I will have screens pause for 2-3 minutes at times.  Of course, I
don't think DJ would mind if everyone pitched in and bought him a T1 ;-)

I have considered setting up a mirror for many of the services on a T3
bandwidth site, but don't have the time right now.
