My mom ordered 5mb cable broadband this morning. AOL will finally be no more in 2-4 days...I honestly can't put my thoughts into words. All I can think of is me giving aol the finger as I uninstall it. And I will finally have xbox live. And, I just don't believe it's happening.

I just have one thing to say...

F*** OFF AOL!!!

Just wait man, in 3 days hopefully, all the people that I know of that ordered from them online said that it took 2 or 3 days, so hopefully that's how long it will take ours also :D

Get your firewall ready, I recommend Norton, McAffe is really annoying. Look for it at Costco, my mom got it when our McAffe stoped updating, and with the rebates it only cost us $5 :D


Now, how do I find how fast my connection is? >.>

I got 3.9 megs ^__^

Did you just edit it? Cause the first bandwidthplace link i got 3.7, but that can fluctuate anywhere from 1.4 -4 depending on local traffic.

Mandatory burn: I thought you were going to say, "I got pubes!"


:xp:


Now that that's out of the way, congrats! :)


My speed here in the lab is 623.2 Kbps. The speed where I'm currently dwelling is 0.0 Kbps. :(


NOTE: 4100kbps = 512KBps = 4.1 mbps = .51 MBps

So a 5mb connection is 625KBps

www.toast.net also offers a free speed test.
www.dslreports.com has a free speed test and a free tweak test where it gives you several options of tweaking your speed to get the fastest possible. at my parents house we started with 3.7-4.1 and after tweaking got it up to 4.7-5.2. unfortunately at my apartment i'm stuck just under 2 because there's a lot more traffic around. :(

Anybody that's used fedex before (or has had something fedexed to you before) know what Left Origen means?

It says that at 5:11 my package "Left Origen" and the status now says In Transit.

Any ideas?

It means that your item has left the warehouse and is on a truck, headed your direction.


Test results:

4154.8 Kbps - You

Not bad... I could probably test better if I waited until 2am when the rest of the neighborhood is asleep, but whatever. Still pretty fast.

I ran it a couple of more times and got some wacky results. Some a tiny bit slower... some much, much faster. That one seems pretty realistic.

I downloaded the AoEIII demo in 20 minutes, and opened limewire for a song, and it was done in under a minute. A 9 mg file in under a minute. I...just...wow...

You share your connection with your neighbors, so its slower whle others are on it, run it again at 4 am.
