    water got a reaction from musikman in What does your username mean?   
    OK, I get really curious. I mean really curious, and since my sense of humor is a little.... well, ok .. a lot... weird, I comeup with some totally weird and sick references....

    So, please ... help me with my issues and tell me what your username means. I seriously doubt that coknuck means Cocknut or CokeNut. But in my twisted reality ...well, you see what I mean...

    Mine? Water is a shorter version of waterbearer. My birthday is Jan 23rd, and I'm an Aquarius. Since I had no clue what to use as a nick online, I used waterbearer the very first time I was on IRC or in a forum. I liked it, it stuck with me, and everyone shortened it to water.  Since I'm more or less a Taoist it seemed to fit with one of my favorite quotes: "The highest goodness is like water. Water benefits all things and does not compete. It stays in the lowly places which others despise. Therefore it is near The Eternal." ~tao te ching... I can relate to the nick, and I would hate to have to lose it or change it, because in some ways it has become me, or I have become it, or something along those lines.

    Eventually, I changed it to water and when we started the Radio Station we added call letters RTBH for Radio That Bites Hard, and we all tagged them onto the end of our nicks.

    That's it. Now it's your turn.

    First off... Welcome to the site!



    We don't call people "n00b" around here. I think that's so rude when people do that, you're just trying to learn something and ... "NEWB! STUPID N00B! neeeeeewwwwB!" --- jerks.

    <a href="http://www.giganews.com/?a=testmy" rel="nofollow"><img align="right" src="http://www.giganews.com/banners/testmy/300x250a.jpg" alt="Giganews Newsgroups"></a>Now, to your query. Yes, I see my max speeds every day. Here's a download off usenet (giganews).


    First, it depends on who's serving you the file. So you're downloading it off a crappy or overloaded site then you might not see your full speeds. But the benefits of a faster connection extend beyond the transfer speed. Having a faster connection will make your overall experience online snappier and less stressful. Go ahead, downgrade your service... then upgrade it to their best package (most decent providers will let you do this and downgrade back to what you were on without a hassle, cable providers like Comcast are always willing to upgrade and downgrade your account... whenever). You'll see the difference... even if you don't download any files.

    Also, I don't see any tests taken under your account or IP address. Take some tests and let us know what your package is (and OS) and we'll try to help you get the most out of it. Depending on your setup there may be a few tricks.
