netlag: [IRC, MUD] n. A condition that occurs when the delays in
   the IRC network or on a MUD become severe enough that
   servers briefly lose and then reestablish contact, causing messages
   to be delivered in bursts, often with delays of up to a minute.
   (Note that this term has nothing to do with mainstream "jet lag",
   a condition which hackers tend not to be much bothered by.)
