Just A Pseudo Random Event in Spinland

  • March 30, 2014

Heh. Just a little off topic rambling, feel free to skip this as irrelevant.

I’m normally in bed early, and asleep soon after. One of my night time habits is to do some reading or web browsing on my iPad before I pack it in. Last night I was awake later than is typical for me, when all of a sudden the network seemed to go to crap. I couldn’t reach anything, not even my local computers. I switched the iPad over from wi-fi to LTE and all worked fine.

Damn, I thought, now I’m going to have to spend the morning troubleshooting my home network and maybe calling Time Warner (a process I loathe).

Then I looked at the time.

There’s a reason I schedule all four computers in the house to start their online backups at 9:30PM: we’re both usually asleep by then. D’oh! I was just seeing the local equivalent of a DDoS attack on my network as they all scrambled to back up everything before morning.

Ain’t I silly?
