The phone tethering reception in cubicleville is marginal enough that pages
trying to load 37 different javascript files don't always get all of them, and
then the browser caches the failure so a reload won't fix it. (Extra fun when it
does that with a stylesheet...)

I'm just glad gmail fixed the pop3 download bug where when it carved out a chunk
of 300 messages for you to download this time, any you didn't download (because
the connection dropped) were deleted off the server. That was a fun couple 
years...
