Hulu Performance last couple of days = bad

We're all worried about poor performance - on our Hulu, right?? Well, on Verizon in Thousand Oaks ( yes, I'm a geek so I want to specifiy which Verizon C.O. I'm connecting to ) over DSL, Hulu performance has been: laggy and freezy. Switch to NBC.com and it's all perfect. Switch back to hulu: Lagg and Freeze. Oddly: When the Ads come on, those are working fine ( on Hulu ) then when the Ad finishes, the show I'm watching is all freezy and the buffer is not filling up. So Hulu's ad server is rockin', but maybe their content server farm is creakin' and crakin' under the load - the downside of popularity, maybe they are ramping too fast for their infrastructure. I hear it might be storage that is the bottleneck. What do you think? #in twitter
