  1. Now that's a great deal. People pay $6 for airplane wifi and it's nowhere near as fast. -- especially the upload. Is that unlimited data?
  2. Originally when I turned https on it was because you wanted to test on SSL and port 8080... I didn't necessarily want the search engines spidering what we hadn't even tested. I think Google is going to weigh https sites heavier in the future so I'm moving the site over to https. They already are but I expect it's going to be even more so. I didn't realize the noindex was still in there... it's now controlled correctly with a separate robots.txt using mod_rewrite to switch the file. RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^443$ RewriteRule ^robots\.txt$ robots_ssl.txt [L] ...but I've already disabled that in preparation. I'll make sure to include a toggle in the new settings with the option to switch between http and https. But the site itself will completely run on SSL, regardless of the option selected. And visiting https://testmy.net will no longer trigger that option. It's really already done, I just want to make sure before I flip it over that I'm not missing anything that will affect pagerank negatively. I don't think the noindex on the https version was causing the issue though. TestMy.net is showing up on Google again, before I removed that line. Could have been one or a combination of the issues we previously talked about. I'll keep working to find my mistakes. :-/ -- one constant is human error.
  3. Some pages are there but many are not and most importantly the index isn't showing up.
  4. Yeah, I don't know what's going on. I'd expect a message in the webmaster console if there was something wrong. Performance could have been cloudflare. I disabled them last night, had only been running them since that recent net neutrality deadline... to run that plugin. Wondering if enabling that had anything to do with it. Maybe cloudflare passed the expires header off differently and it made Google think I didn't want the pages cached. I submitted for reindexing. Hopefully it's fixed soon. -- Come on Google! I hope it's just an issue with those other servers redirecting to testmy.net. The redirects should have included 301 header and also the canonical meta. If you can find anything I'm doing wrong from Google's perspective please let me know. I'm just trying to help people over here by providing a free and hopefully useful service. Between stuff like this, ad spammers and people trying to hack me constantly --- it makes it real difficult to do for the Internet what I really want.
  5. That was the first place I looked. No messages. No issues coming up. that's definitely a strong possibility, I edited the robots.txt on those servers to disallow. Just did the canonical header, great suggestion. expires header is set to nocache and even though I changed session.cache_limiter to public in php.ini it's still showing Thu, 19 Nov 1981 08:52:00 GMT Maybe a setting in nginx I'm missing.
  6. Why do you say that?
  7. Things sure have changed........

    Hey ninjageek, glad to see you again... of course we remember you. Crazy, you've been a member here for almost 11 years! Personally I'm still big into my desktop and laptop. I feel handicapped on tablets and mobile devices. I'm not a big fan of the input right now, never have been a fan of touching the screen. Excited to see it in the early days (80's early 90's), I like how far it's come but I can't wait for a better way. As a society right now we're wasting too much of our time with the input between our minds and our devices. I imagine it will get better but for now a mouse, keyboard and monitor still connect me to my digital life in a way that a tablet can't. I imagine a future where people won't have to have their faces in their phones all day. It bugs me how impersonal people are becoming as a result of technology. You check out at a store and the clerk doesn't even make eye contact, it didn't used to be that way. You can tell who the tech addicts are in society. In the future I believe we'll get that back as people have less need to be burred because the input will be so much more seamless and fluid. You'll be able to express what you want to much quicker, without touching anything. For some this will dig them in deeper but I think for most it will be a freeing transition. I hear you on the gaming. The only gaming I've done in a couple years is playing NES Mario with my 5 yo daughter. -- Already not enough hours in the day and then on top of it the games I like to play are extremely violent FPS war games... my kids are always with me and I'd rather take them to the zoo or park to be honest. One day I'll play again.
  8. Test PING

    Keep in mind, you must be registered and signed in. This will most likely be open for all users in the next version.
  9. Compare your Download Speeds!!!

    You get a great connection to some places, not other. Pretty common with all Gbps right now. Even commercial. Thanks
  10. testmy.net auto test will not re-test

    Are you walking away from the computer? Maybe your computer is set to sleep or something. Change your power management settings to keep the computer on all the time. You can still sleep your drives and display. If you've already done that, try setting it to 5 minutes and have the screen focused at the time the next test is supposed to start. Let me know if it still fails to rerun.
  11. I hadn't seen or heard about this but I just updated the IP.Board core. Try it again and see if it's resolved.
  12. Any 4x4 or Jeep Enthusiast here?

    Haha, definitely. Is that an F250?
  13. No longer detecting my provider?

    I don't understand how you have a public facing IP starting with 255. -- anyone have an idea what's going on here?
  14. No longer detecting my provider?

    Entering your IP into TestMy.net/iptools and MaxMind demo doesn't resolve to any provider, city, country. Keep in mind that doesn't affect your testing at TestMy.net. Your results just won't be compared like they used to. In the future I may provide an option to select the provider you want to compare against, so you'll be able to manually resolve in your case.
  15. Any 4x4 or Jeep Enthusiast here?

    Found pics of the old Jeep back in the day. Loved that Jeep. It was effortless in everything it did.
  16. Any 4x4 or Jeep Enthusiast here?

    I love off roading. Right now I'm running a 2015 F150. Used to have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4" lift and 33" MT's -- I tried to get it stuck, settling into thick boggy mud up to the doors... let it sink in for a while with friends on the sideline in case I got stuck. It just idled right out of it. Crazy. In my truck I wouldn't try half the stuff I did in the Jeep. Almost flipped that XJ like 5 times... forward, backward, left and right... wheels off the ground, so sketchy I'm telling my passengers, "Okay, now everyone.... slooowly, lean to the right." --- scariest thing we've done in the f150 involved having to drive backward on an icy ledge when the pass was so snowed over it was impossible to move forward. Scary part was that the truck was slipping off to the ledge side no matter how hard I tried because of grooves in the ice that made the tires want to run with it. It's fine if you're going forward but going backward it was just bad news. Probably one of the most hardcore sticky situations I've been in off road. My favorite off road is riding my quad. (I ride a really light, 2 stroke, sport quad) You can get to so many more places so much quicker. I feel connected on a quad, like I can climb any hill and get past any obstacle. The Sonoran Desert in Arizona is also MUCH better for off roading that out there in Colorado. You have more freedom in the desert. hellcleaner and others, tell some stories about where you 4x4.
  17. Question about the test

    You should be getting the same speed regardless of size. As Pgoodwin1 is saying, a longer test can be more revealing. In my opinion longer test duration gives a more accurate representation of your true average. It's the reason why TestMy.net gives you the option to run those longer tests. Cable connections are often designed to burst in the beginning of a download. TMN is designed to detect this and as long as you haven't told it otherwise it will automatically ramp up your connection with subsequent testing. Ending with a result that took at least 7 seconds... but if the test forwarded through a couple of sizes your connection would have probably run out of that burst by the time that final test runs. Last I saw you were on AT&T I don't know why it's showing a blank provider for you. Maybe it's because you're a MAsterTroll. Looking at your results it seems you average between 41 and 48 Mbps down on those smaller tests. You have some that are higher (65Mbps+) but you also have some much lower (19 Mbps). Then you seem to average down to about 40 Mbps with the 200 MB test. This pattern is consistent in all of your 200 MB results. http://testmy.net/db/OGAT8jlQd It starts out at that nice speed that you're used to seeing on smaller tests. But it then always trails off to about 30 Mbps. So I would bet if you went to download a very large file, you'll end up running at about 30 Mbps -- approximately 200 MB into the download... and you probably won't see any positive fluctuation in the speed after that point. In my opinion, that's a 30 Mbps connection. A 30 Mbps connection that feels like a 65 Mbps connection. Test it out. I just downloaded this Ubuntu ISO at over 20MB/s from Colorado Springs. (try other random mirrors) See what speed it settles into, let us know what you find.
  18. New build.

    Me too that's sick!
  19. TMN Test Fails To Start

    Nice, you rock!
  20. TMN Test Fails To Start

    By the way, I haven't been able to duplicate the issue since the update. Please let me know how it looks on your end now.
  21. TMN Test Fails To Start

    Good catch guys, I had noticed it a while back but thought it was a local issue. The clue that it only does this in firefox helped. I was able to quickly duplicate the issue and trace back to a fairly recent change, seems that must have been the reason I did it the way it was done originally. Corrections have been made to the source and propagated to all servers. Thank you for reporting this, please continue to keep me on my toes. Your input makes TestMy.net.
  22. The most common question that people ask us is why their results here differ from speedtest.net. I want to explain something that may help you understand why this is. According to the Ookla Wiki the following is true about your tests taken at speedtest.net... The fastest 10% and slowest 30% of your results are DISCARDED The remaining data is averaged together to determine the final result Throwing away the fastest 10% and slowest 30% of the results in my opinion does not make for an accurate test. Isn't THAT the data that you're here to see? Also note this isn't only true for speedtest.net. Ookla is huge, most of the speed tests online run their software. Source: http://wiki.ookla.com/ Multithreading makes your connection look better Ookla speed tests are also multithreaded. Meaning that they open more than one connection to the host and combine the speeds. This often can mask congestion issues. For instance, imagine that you have a pipe along your route that's limiting you to 10 Mbps. If you open more than one connection through that pipe you'll be able to achieve a faster speed... but testing that way will not clue you in that there is actually a problem along the route. Remember, you shouldn't have to multithread your connection to pull your full speed. Multithreaded speed tests, like the majority out there, are designed to benefit the Internet provider not the consumer. They often display your maximum throughput not your throughput over the course of an entire upload or download. Omitting the worst portion of your test resulting in inflated scores that may make you feel warm and fuzzy but aren't going to help you see and resolve connection issues. Multithreading can show that you're able to max out your connection by combining the speed of concurrent connections but a great connection can max out without having to multithread. So, if you have to multithread your connection to get your full speed, you should be asking why that is. With TestMy.net it's instantly apparent if there is a congested route. Your speed here reflects the actual loading time of data within your browser... not the combined efforts of multiple threads being altered (dropping the top 10% and bottom 30% of the results) and added together, all through a plugin that isn't suited for the task. :: EDIT :: If you'd like to multithread with TMN, I offer that as well. Try the multithread speed test. TMN's multithread test gives you the option to select from an array of servers. Allowing you to test across multiple routes, to more than one server at a time. TestMy.net is the only Internet speed test with this ability. So THAT'S why your results differ. -- TestMy.net is a harder test to ace and a lot less forgiving than other speed tests. But isn't that what a benchmark should be? :: EDIT :: Another thing to consider is if you're running windows, particularly if it's older than Windows 7 you may need to tune your TCP stack to see your full speeds. Windows doesn't always come out of the box optimized for fast connections. Flash based speed tests fail to detect this problem. To make this change for free I recommend TCP Optimizer. This makes changing those settings very easy and nearly fool proof. Just open it, slide the bar over to your speed that you're supposed to have, check "modify all adapters" ...apply the settings and reboot. You should have faster speeds after your re-test if that was the problem. Here's an outside source talking about exactly this issue, I'll hunt down more examples. >> Download Speed Test - Something fishy? A few related topics :: Accuracy..

  23. Thank you Sean! This has been corrected and it now checks the availability of the server as it should. Was only affecting the UK selection when you specifically targeted UK by itself. Great catch!
  24. You're getting about 390 ms at TestMy.net so I'd expect better than what you're seeing to Carbonite
