The 'net is spazzing out tonight for me

The internet has been acting really wonky for me all night. Not everywhere, but probably a good half of everywhere I've gone online tonight has been spazzy to some extent or another--loading time-outs, weird-looking page loads, extra-super-duper slooooooow loads, etc. It seems to be mostly on mainstream national news, some store sites, Facebook. Even YouTube has been glitchy with the page loads & streaming. The places that seem to be operating perfectly normal are my email and the forums I frequent (ATS included)

Has anyone else experienced this? It's the same thing for me if I use a different browser. I've combed over my computer, and have no suspicious programs hiding out. I'm wondering if it's a bunch of DDOS nuts going overboard. Or maybe it's just my internet provider's regional server going haywire?

Nothing turned up on my virus scan. I did the fine-comb MS SE scan, and a full AVG scan (no, I don't generally run them both at the same time, I usually keep MS SE turned off, only run it to make sure if I'm skeptical of results)

Yahoo email for me, too. And it made a liar out of me shortly after posting. I can't get it to load for nothing. Youtube right now is timing out on the load, and news sites are still loading in a "bare bones" kind of look.

Miri08, I've tried Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. All of them are having the same issues.

Do we perhaps all have the same service provider? I wonder if it could be an issue related to the provider company? I have Verizon DSL, do any of you use it, too?

No, I have Comcast or I guess it's called Xfinity now. It could just be my provider, they are kind of....to put it nicely - bad... but it's just odd that you all are having some of the same issues too.

I'm back on Firefox right now (which is what I usually use) but I tried Chrome and even IE (which I hate) and all were the same for YouTube and my email. A few other pages were a little slow loading but nothing major.

ETA: I use avast and ran a scan before actual start up and the comp was fine, then AVG later and still nothing. I've also done a defrag recently and my cache is clean so idk.

I remembered the Akamai monitor site. It's interesting to note that it does in fact seem to be a little slower here in FL (latency view) and the PNW. The traffic view is above normal, especially in the California region. I'm not sure how the attacks view factors in to right now for those of us having problems. It's for the past 24 hours, so I do suppose it may include recent ones that may have an effect on us? If anyone has a better understanding of what this data represents, could you explain it a little?
