A friend of mine was dogged by slow Internet, well below the service levels he paid for. Since it was DSL based he figured it was phone company nonsense, and was an ongoing battle with the phone company over his service. He couldn't or wouldn't switch to cable, although I don't remember why.

Anyway, eventually it comes up in conversation that he has a Windows 2008 Server machine that is Internet facing, running out of his home network.

*headdesk*

As soon as he said that, I was like "here's how to fix your Internet"

Sure enough, half the network was basically a botnet for Kevin only knows who.

He doesn't run servers out of his home anymore.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
