Anyone have any video from the snow storms seemingly ongoing in the east now?

Is there some kind of capacity problem YouTube is struggling with? I've noticed this for ages, high definition video stalls and buffers fairly frequently in the evenings. I'm trying to watch videos via an SGS3 over LTE (testing at around 18mbps down right now) which should be easily enough bandwidth to not worry about YouTube videos buffering, but they are. Is the problem at the source, meaning at YouTube servers?

The bitrate is safely higher than what EDGE can provide (all of the 720p bitrates on youtube are 2.0 to 2.9 mbps). Are you viewing the "HD" stream? "HQ" and non-HD, non-HQ are fine for me. Moreover I have no problem streaming from a Plex server at 4.0 mbps.

Communicate with a system that is encrypted from terminal to terminal if you are worried about the government (or unethical employees) snooping on your data on US based servers. Meet up with friends. Exchange one time pads.

Sure is quiet. Is winter over?

I don't know about hours. The average snowfall for the whole season at PDX is around 6 or 7 inches, typically spread between 2-4 small events, I believe.

Just think of all the cloth diapers that were washed there.
If I've seemingly randomly followed you, it's probably because you posted about snow or weather in general.
