Oh BTW, the science article I got the pic from said nothing about climate change or global warming. It was about research trying to figure out where all the charged electrons in the earth's radiation belts go when the sun blasts out like it has been lately. It was thought that most of them were swept out into space but now they're saying it looks like a large amount of them come into the upper atmosphere and stick around for a while. That's what the pic is supposed to be showing, all that energy showing up as heat.

I know what you mean, I haven't shot off ions in eons.

I think it's a pretty neat looking picture. I'd like to find a higher rez copy of it.

I thought Chrome was supposed to be faster than Firefox.

Took me 25 using FF.

I was kinda disappointed with the hi res pic. I thought it would be much clearer.

Maybe I'll try it sometime when I want to tie up my computer all day.

Don't bother Quasi. The quality is not worth it on this one.

speedtest never made sense to me are larger numbers faster or slower here?

Bigger numbers for speed, lower numbers for ping are both better

I'm sure Pulse cheated. Those numbers are typical of a hard-wired 100Mbs connection on a LAN.

The ping and the upload speed would be terrible for cheating with a lan connection smiling

Actually to be honest I'm disappointed it wasn't higher, especially the upload speed. There's four speedtest servers in Melbourne, I tried all of them and Telstra gave the best results. I might've got better speed from a Sydney one though.

Not great speed, but almost at the 90th percentile for NZ - one of the disadvantages of living in the middle of the ocean.

for me mine is pretty good since I am not paying for the highest speed so I am happy with what I have. $100 a month is just too much to pay for internet in my opinion.

My speed isn't that great either but it is usable and that's all I care about.

Maybe if I were downloading movies I would want a faster connection but I am not so I am happy with what I have.

Alright, alright fine smiling
smiley Those ones above were at work.



Usually I can clock in faster than this, the ping is about right but I actually sync at 22mbps down and 2mbps up so it's not quite representative of the speed, but it's fast enough.

I never used to think a keyboard could have too many functions until I saw that keyboard, way too many functions and too high a price.
