    These are the same sites that I'm checking every day though. Why would they be fine some days &

    Wuh? No. Just can't believe the single mile matters so much. Yet video cached in LAX buffers differently from one cached in NYC and from another one cached in HKG. (YouTube doesn't use Akamai openly - Google's still in talks with those guys - but it does use Google Cache, everyone, who happened to open Activity Window of Safari only once, knows that)
