No, *this* time it wasn't a problem of the so-called "data highways".
Some crazu people placed a bomb (NO JOKE!!!) at the main Telekom office 
in Koblenz, where we connect to the Internet, resulting in a total 
failure of all ISDN, cable TV, BTX and wide-area network services 
around Koblenz.
I must say, this time the German Telecoma worked really fast. It took
only half a day to setup sufficient backup lines and switching systems!

It is. Definitely. Do a single fseek() and performance goes
