    Default What is your connection?(If you're still reading this, you haven't went to school)

    If you're still loading up, get broadband.

    Hehehe, nice joke on the title! Anyway, as I said what is your internet connection? Mine is a 4 MB connection. Brilliant connection I think. Don't get BT broadband, it's rubbish. Get telewest! If you have dial-up, get outta here. Wait, what if a Mod has a dial-up connection? WaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhH!!!!!!!!!!111 *runs away wimpering and hides behind a wall, away from the fearsome Moderators.*



    If I was smart, I would have a witty punchline in this sig that would make everyone ROTFL.

    I'm not smart.

    512kb/2mb ADSL - but we have a wireless and my PC is too far from the router.

    Would you have used the word 'Awesome'? I wouldn't have. I think this connection sucks, especially for the 60 USD or whatever it is that I pay for it. Eh, oh well.

    2 Mb for me.

    1.5mb-4mb ADSL

    Not sure but my download speeds never go over 160 kb/s. Why is this?
    If you're wondring why you aren't getting 1.5 megabytes per second download, it's because your connection speed in measured in bits, while your download rate is in bytes, which are 8 times bigger. I'm not sure this is what you're asking, though.

    Wait isn't it the other way around? My connection speed should 8 times bigger, and download speed be a lot slower. I think it's "storage speed"? Can someone correct me one this?

    We are all aware that the senses can be deceived, the eyes fooled. But how can we be sure our senses are not being deceived at any particular time, or even all the time? Might I just be a brain in a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?

    Your download speed is much slower than your connection speed. I'm not sure what you're saying, really.
