    Talking

    I need something very big to download,

    I have 1.5mbit DSL, and I have downloaded anything I ever wanted....

    VS7 beta
    VS SP4
    Platform SDK
    Dx SDK
    winamp
    lots of songs from napster
    a 50MB ADA compiler
    WSFTP_LE
    etc


    I don't have anything left...

    come on... someones gotta have something useful that is larger than 30 MB(I could take 30MB on in about 20 minutes)

    It's not nice to brag...besides that's Matthew Gate's job. You're the smart ass and he's the egoist.

    I have a Verizon DSL line at home. I have had nothing but problems with it. They sent me a memo that there was new software for me to download (drivers & ****), I installed them, and know it is running even slower!!! I hate Verizon!!! I try to call them, but they are ALWAYS busy!! My old 56K modem moves faster than this DSL line at times. I go to Microsoft's web site to try to do the speed test, but all I get is 6K / second download!!!

    I am going to cancel my service and get a cable modem.

    Try Corel Linux, all 370 Mbs of it...

    http://linux.corel.com

    Sorry to make you feel bad, but the satellite link we have at college is like 300Kbps or something!

    20Mb in about 30 seconds....

    hehe!

    I don't feel bad,
    because first of all, you said "at our college" which obviously means you don't live there, so I have very fast DSL which currently peaked at 500, and you don't...
    and at school, they have a T1, which has peeked at about 700 before... so

    thanks for the link BTW....

    hey Dennis, why are you so eager to fill up your hard drive by downloading such big files?

  17. #17
    Guest
    It's not that I wanna fill my hard drive up,
    it's just i Like seeing the text that says "150KBps" then it says "200KBps" etc...

    Never used one... I want to though....

    T1's are hella-fast, T3's would be *Dennis can't continue to talk because of the drool that is coming out of his mouth*

    well, actually what i want most is a T5 *Heavenly light shines down on Dennis*

    *drool*

    Make note of the "have used." What I have at home runs at about 888 bytes.

    They can't make you pay for it, it's open source. They charge for some of the utilities they develop for it, for documentation, and for postage and packaging. They don't own the copyright to the OS itself, so they can't charge for just the OS.

    barrk-
    Once again, thank you. I tried re-doing my registry (like that tweeking page told me to). That didn't help. This morning I am online (6:07 am EST) and my DSL is rocking. I went back to that test page and now it is saying everyting is healthy. I believe that traffic in northern NJ is a problem. Once again, thanks.
