  1. Democratizing Webcam Eye Tracking on the Browser: WebGazer.js is an eye tracking library that uses common webcams to infer the eye-gaze locations of web visitors on a page in real time. The eye tracking model it contains self-calibrates by watching web visitors interact with the web page and trains a mapping between the features of the eye and positions on the screen. WebGazer.js was built It is written entirely in JavaScript and with only a few lines of code can be integrated in any website that wishes to better understand their visitors and transform their user experience. WebGazer.js runs entirely in the client browser, so no video data needs to be sent to a server. Source Now you understand why that sticky note hangs over my cam on the laptop. Though, this is not new technology, just getting a bit more ingrained in daily life.
  2. Intermittent Drop Out

    @Hypopyon, If this were myself, I would run the auto test, example for a two hour movie scenario: This test will run for 125 minutes, once every five minutes, testing upload and download minimum 1MB per test run, 'nfw' is selected to reserve bandwidth as were simply getting as close to a connectivity test as we can. (This means the tests will not forward to a larger test size until the test takes seven seconds. Although I'm not up on the TTL (how long the test server will wait for a response before giving up) therefore the two hour test every five minutes, if your getting eight droputs per movie, you should catch several, in theory. Though in your case, I might be running wireshark , (packet capture) to view the responses during the loss, which can be a bit overwhelming to learn.
  3. Australian Servers?

    @barney79, Welcome to testmy.net forum. If your testing to a specific server such as the testmy.net Australian server, and the test is originated from the same continent, that is where the test is run. Full stop. The reporting server has no bearing on the test results. The test has already been completed before results are sent anywhere, the Australian test server simply reports findings to the main testmy.net server, records them into the database, and reports back to you, after the test has been taken. If you were to run the multi threaded test ( selecting more than one server, then yes there would obviously be more variables involved) but that is not your question or case it seems. Not sure where the provider is getting this information, but generally speaking, that theory would not be viable in any test environment. As you may well already be aware of.
  4. Speed test wrong?

    @daronmal , I look for specific results when I test, and believe me I've used everything you can think of out there. But we learn, and we begin to understand what is and what is not realistic and steady. If I don't use TMN, then I'm running a command line test such as a known file size using wget, iperf, or various combinations of many different variables, for any number of testing reasons. Hell you can spin up a VM at any number of high flow datacenters around the world, paying attention to their overall connectivity to a backbone, get an iperf server up in minutes and start testing to that location. Shoot, even testmy.net has a command line test (chuck the GUI and it's limitations if your so inclined), grab the wget for windows binary: https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/ Here are a few links to get you started: https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/faq.html#download And run : wget -O /dev/null http://testmy.net/dl-100MB There should be a progress bar (never used it on windows so maybe you can tell me) Here, I just ran the test on FreeBSD in a terminal: $ wget -O /dev/null http://testmy.net/dl-100MB --2017-11-06 13:25:18-- http://testmy.net/dl-100MB Resolving testmy.net (testmy.net)...,, 2400:cb00:2048:1::681c:1666, ...

  5. Speed test wrong?

    Actually this is the exact reason for various testing sites, it is performing precisely as intended. Showing you where the issue is. There is a routing issue between your ISP, and the New York test server, likely due to the fact the ISP has changed their schema to IPV6 on your modem, and they are likely working out new routes for this block. Of course you could have gotten bumped to a different ISP level network for various other reasons as well. Therefore the tool is doing it's job, letting you know your connection is not proper from the ISP, to the New York area, yet proper to Florida. See, if a site has a CDN (Content Delivery Network) you will not notice pageload issues, considering you will pull from the available resource in line, on the other hand, if a site is not static (like a blog) and is in the New York area, you will load slowly, if at all. If the 'blog' is located in Florida, and not on any CDN, then you'll load quickly. Testmy.net is a tool not just to check for throughput, or what speeds you are paying for, but for geographical connectivity as well.
  6. Speed test wrong?

    The results to the new york server are due to ISP issues, nothing we can do about that, I'm sure they will get it right when they are capable of doing so. That said, testing to various geographical area's is the best way to ascertain how your ISP is conducting their peering (how they transfer your data over networks they do not own) Therefore never stick to just one test server for any reason other than local connectivity issues (intrastate or ISP to your desktop connectivity)
  7. Speed test wrong?

    Correct, this proves an ISP routing issue. Especially when you can test over 1000 Miles away and get better results than several hundred.
  8. Speed test wrong?

    No, I don't think so. This is about routing, it appears considering the IPV6 change, your route has also changed. The IP detection (not showing the provider) is simply due to the IP database not currently in the database here, which would have no bearing on your route to here. Test to other testmy.net/mirror s and see what changes.
  9. Speed test wrong?

    Well there is your answer. IPV6! It would appear this does not reside in the current database at testmy.net , let me raise this with @CA3LE And networking is complex, I am always looking for answers (including currently in my own situation) so no worries there. No one knows it all or even half of it.
  10. Speed test wrong?

    @daronmal, have you run a traceroute to testmy.net? Your routing could be skewed in the middle of this (possible) process mentioned above
  11. Speed test wrong?

    Yea that would likely have no effect on this issue. I'm going out on a limb and claim Comcast is doing some block movement, and or in the middle of moving you to IPV6, the latter more likely from what I can see, considering they are now issuing special purpose blocks
  12. Speed test wrong?

    I can only assume you changed the NIC, however this does not account for the provider not being recognized, which may or may not be anything on your end. Depending on how you may have as well changed your network , ie: firewall, VPN, proxy ect physically or software. I believe maxmind is still the GEOIP source testmy.net uses, which is by far always correct, (due to advances as well as the ever changing topology in networking as a whole) so it could be anywhere between you and or the ISP as well. The next thing to look at might be, did this occur before, or after your hardware change. As well I might ask if there were extending circumstances as to the reasoning behind the hardware change.

    @iamdw @daronmal Both of these account resolve to the same root servers: fyi AUTHORITY SECTION: . 3600 IN SOA a.root-servers.net. nstld.verisign-grs.com. 2017110501 1800 900 604800 86400
  15. Speed test wrong?

    @daronmal , I see you have changed devices since obtaining the higher throughput values. Although the most recent provider is not being detected. This could be a DNS or geoip issue, not excluding maxmind. Go back to the previous device and retest please.
  16. Here we go again. No detected provider.

    This appears to be a recurring event , is the rheostat faulty?

    I use libreoffice, simply by adding separation via space, as well as comma the field is split vertically, example: As downloaded: Then changing to 'space': You can edit the fields however you wish to define them.

    That is a good suggestion. However interesting the problem solving of the local query might be to sort out, considering the same time happens each day, including the seconds.
  19. Yes you read that correct. Finally getting back to where we could have started. " Silicon Valley start-up Pi on Monday claimed it had developed the world’s first truly wireless and contact-free charger, that does away with cords or mats to charge devices. Pi chargers, about the size of a small table vase, operate on standard charging technology used in Apple or Android smartphones designed to be powered up wirelessly. But instead of cords or mats, the conical creation charges smartphones remotely with magnetic waves. Magnetic fields are an ideal way to safely send energy to portable electronics, said Pi chief technology officer Lixin Shi, who co-created the charger with John MacDonald. The trick was bending magnetic waves to find smartphones, the co-founders said during a presentation at the TechCrunch Disrupt start-up scrum in San Francisco. “The hard part was figuring out how to make magnetic charging more flexible, multi-device and extend its useful range,” Shi said. “It took us over a year to complete the mathematical proof that makes it all possible.” The pair figured out how to shape the magnetic field so energy could be beamed to smartphones placed or in use within 30cm of a Pi charger. Shi and MacDonald were graduate students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology when they met and began to collaborate on the project about 3.5 years ago. Both have since graduated from university. Pi’s magnetic fields are relatively weak, far less than the levels used for medical imaging, but allow devices to be charged at “full speed,” according to MacDonald. A combination of smartphones and tablets could wirelessly charge on a desk if a Pi were placed near people working together. Pi set up shop in the Silicon Valley city of San Bruno, and the co-founders said they raised US$3.5 million in a seed funding round lead by SoftTech VC managing partner Jean-Francois Clavier. MacDonald promised that Pi devices would begin shipping next year and be priced “well below $200.” Apple this month unveiled three new iPhone models, including a 10th-anniversary edition iPhone X, all of which featured wireless charging, albeit on a charging mat. The company said it will come to market with AirPower charging mats sized to accommodate an iPhone, Apple Watch and an AirPods earpiece case. Source
  20. Upload speed drop advice

    @gmatv, Maybe run a few more tests here since this has been a few days, working with different test servers http://testmy.net/mirror Without more information it would be difficult to diagnose. Is there any reason not to segregate the networks? At least as a failover?
  21. pydf on FreeBSD

    For comparison, here is a different BackupPC server, running Debian, which has been reporting correctly: [email protected]:~# pydf Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/dm-0 1802G 123G 1596G 6.8 [##.................................] / /dev/sda1 235M 33M 190M 13.9 [#####..............................] /boot So it seems I've been elbow deep into the FreeBSD port, and will in time learn who the python script is getting their info from, and get it updated.
