netburp: [IRC] n. When netlag gets really bad, and delays
   between servers exceed a certain threshhold, the IRC network
   effectively becomes partitioned for a period of time, and large
   numbers of people seem to be signing off at the same time and then
   signing back on again when things get better.  An instance of this
   is called a `netburp' (or, sometimes, netsplit).
