It's hard to predict or prevent, and I don't have the option to upgrade the hardware in this particular case, so I'm stuck dealing with it & trying to find work-arounds.
Hmm... that sounds bad. Even a raspberry Pi is more powerful than a server from 20 years ago. And people were running ISPs on that hardware.
There's just no reason for a system to *block* for 30s. That's terrible!

"reality based" is not "harsh".
20 years of the same questions tends to result in very blunt answers. i.e. *technical* answers to *technical* questions. That's what a technical list is for.
The problem is when people want *reassurance*. i.e "my system is broken, but I don't want to be told that". Their ego gets in the way of technical solutions. That's not appropriate for a technical list.
