There's been a pretty substantial drop in network speed today.

We're at 591.60 as of this posting. We started the current period at 591.25! (Unfortunately that is still 35% up over average of last period. Oh well).

Not that this is a bad thing, but I wonder what caused this?

My theory would be that a mining supplier (BitFury?) was using new equipment to mine until the last day of the current period, and now that difficulty is about to increase, turned it off to send to customers.
