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.
