  1. Unknown ISP? hmm

    I just need to know how I tag my info correctly? I assume I had to block my IP address so I did... It use to detect my country and all and my ISP as well... Any assist would be great. okthxbye.
  2. Change the display name

    Ha, glad you get the reference
  3. Change the display name

    @29930130 but what if the offense was given in a form of a cake?
  4. Good Morning All

    Welcome @imageswishes
  5. Change the display name

    Ahh! No! I was talking in general. Wasn't speaking of you in any negative manner, sorry if it seemed that way. I see in different forums users request name change a lot. Some forums strictly stick with "no" answer. lol
  6. *pokes at internet with a stick* is it alive? ... is it hungry?
  7. cleaning a pc with air compressor

    Like a portable air compressor is not meant for PC cleaning,... I guess you could use it if used from a minimum distance. Close range would cause pressure damage as previously mentioned above ^ I use compressed air designed for computer dusting/cleaning. So the psi is not too strong in the first place but not too weak either. but a portable air compressor is powered... that would concern me....
  8. Change the display name

    @CA3LE - I don't know if implementing name change for users to control would be a good idea -with great power truly comes great corruption... because humans are dumb... And why is it a frequent name change request? Maybe set rules like "1 name change every 6 months" like.. seriously, how indecisive are people? >.>
  9. Hey @nuisance1390 Hughes network has such a bad name, Up here in Canada I am hearing about them... (and as far as I know, they don't provide service to us folks) So that's definitely horrible... A good starting point would be companies that don't do contracts ... if company don't do contracts, it is for one of two reasons... they believe there product is strong enough for you to stay or they believe they are aren't strong enough for people agree to contract cheap enough for you to try them out. Dirt cheap = Bad service in the internet realm... Companies who do contracts are usually due to competitors, and they don't want to have customers get up and leave, and usually these companies know about their own problems... not sure if you actually want to do your own research but thought I'd give my input... Any one in Cottonwood AZ area or know info about the area that wants to chime in?
  10. Out of curiosity, does Hughes Net not have a competitor in their service region? What are their (the competitor) service like?
  11. I'm going to break things down bit.. by bit... by bit... because I can... and I'm bored. "When you go off grid to different servers you take a journey across strange and far away lands. You cross other networks, other servers, and will get different paths at different times of day and night due to heavier or lighter internet traffic. Why should a provider like Spectrum or Comcast be to blame for slow speeds and poor connection when you are requesting information, or even a speed test, from someone else's network?" Because most ISP actually guarantee that on their end and state that it is the speed you'll get. When it's mostly not true. Power users usually look at +/- and understand the losses during up time and downtime. However an average Joe wouldn't. That is why. If an ISP is stating 250mbps. Then you should be getting somewhere near that. "If you bought a new car and the manufacturer promised that it would get 60MPG, that means under normal driving conditions, or keeping it on the smooth flat roads....in network. Now when you take that car across country, out of network, up and down mountains, back country roads, and mud holes...poorly maintained infrastructure, remote locations, bad servers...you let less MPG, or in our case Mbps. Are you gonna blame the car manufacturer for the lowered MPG when you took the car into strange locations?" Yes, a poorly designed frame, body weight placement, bhp to whp performance ratio, and shock absorbent on struts and shocks for a vehicle can cause heavy MPG downfall. Which is the manufacture's issue, especially if advertised only on "optimal situations". Especially if I buy a SUV that can barely handle highway roads and pot holes, when it is advertised as an OFFROAD in their commercial and marketing. Yes. I would heavily blame the manufacture. If the issue is big enough it can be a class action suite as well lol Isn't it fun when I know a little about the interwebs and cars? Your point you're making is valid in principle. btw, you have a shitty boss. My boss blames the traffic If we are taking about the internet and highways. Let's really come back up from the dumb-down version for end users. We relate it to the highway to give newbs and low-end users an understanding of what the internet works with or like. That's a lot of empty land mass if you look at a map. Your internet highway had multiple exits, routes and connection that is a two way lane and your car can travel either direction without a loss of speed or slow down. Congestion doesn't happen on the road, it happens on the terminating node or server, so pretty much a ball of yarn is what the internet looks like as "highway" surrounding the globe. X amount routes and nodes it can connect and move to. This is why you get packet loss (one of many reasons) when you are hitting a bad node/server. right? riiiight. However, if your ISP in North America says "You will get 300mbps download speed" and the users are testing at "230mbps" from Mother Russia, then that's not bad. Because 150mbps isn't hard hit for power users, unless you are expecting exactly 300mbps consistently ... which I would consider silly because that won't ever be true, speed fluctuate. but for users who have ISP telling them "You will get 25mbps download speed" and they are getting "0.01mbps or 10kbps" as a test from same server in Mother Russia then the issue would be more so the ISP then "situational highways" The Infrastructure that is lagging is normally the ISP and the agreement of other ISP by the said ISP, it is business and throttling. Nothing more. Like I said, the point you're making is very much valid in principle... but you forget what TMN here is for. Ookla for example, shows you ideal results. TMN at least shows you how crappy the roads are. Your message fully felt like the hate on the the glory of TMN. So what false information are you referring to? the ones you are trying to portray? because that's what it sounded like to me, a one sided view. So I wanted to add mine. My issue is other Speed Test sites, some have partnered up with ISPs (they get a kick back). I don't think TMN is saying your ISP suck; TMN shows what it pulls. Just. Data. Now, you wanna hate your ISP, your dog or your neighbour for sleeping with your wife, it isn't TMN's issue. What you do with the data logs is up to you. It's a tool to help YOU. A tool. That's it. FYI, I am adding to the friendly debate, with humor along the way. I could be horribly wrong. Who knows. Also. WHAT IS WITH THAT GIANT FLOWER?!
