The machine was idle and the modem was blinking constantly during the whole time I was there, without any one logged it. Needless to say, my friend complained his machine was "starting to get slow". Translation: the machine was pwnd..

The constant blinking was probably the result of the ARP flood issue that's plagued Optimum for years...
