Speed

I've just been getting outrageously high download speeds on the cable at home.
Averaging 336 kB/s

Hypothetically, if one were to say download the first episode of the second series of *cough* Terminator on something like bittorrent at 350 MB it would take just 17 minutes to download.

What did you do? I could use some insanely high speeds like that. There is so much porn, er, award winning films out there that I'd like to burn.

Well, Steve, this is all hypothetical of course because nobody would deny a starving media conglomerate of advertising revenue, right?

ye - cant fool you, but *remember olde man that 1MB = 1024 kB. If you're not careful you'll be 2% out.


*Re member, - do we have to "member" it in the first place to REmember it later?

Is the first Terminator ep out already? I always mark these things on my calender and then loose track. Fingers crossed on that they don't make girl terminator someone other than River Tam.

Also, Shame on you, being a geek isn't masculine or feminine, it is a universal honor. (Also I think they think I should be interested in more noble pursuits like my hair and if my butt looks big in this.)

Eostre > Goddess of beginnings, of dawn, fertility and libido I do believe (well, actually I don't believe, as I'm a confirmed and practising atheist).

Welcome to my humble abode, my very own emunctory organ, excreting my bad ideas onto the web. Please, my home is your home.

I would, but don't tell anyone.

You need some upgrades there Steve, just ran a speed test here,
5.886 mB/s down, 472kB/s up.

Best speed I've seen was at a friend's home in Chicago, 13 mb/s down!

I downloaded a 4:30 song in 2 seconds there. Made my jaw drop.

You could use the internet as your high speed cache
