    name servers have to propogate through a web (a WORLD WIDE WEB) of other servers. that takes time for the name tables to update.

    You see there is a series of tubes....

    To expand upon what Aslan has said-the tubes have a somewhat complex structure which makes it physically hard to maneuver them at times. Breaks are needed to regain energy and continue to complete the mission, etc.
