networking A condition that occurs when the delays in the
IRC network, a MUD connection, a telnet connection, or
any other networked interactive system, 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").
