  1. Don't remind me about school. I have so much crap to do. Book report for AP english, scholarships, and deciding which schools to apply to.
  2. Darn, i was hoping u were talking about DSL.
  3. My verizon dsl only cuts off during every single thnder storm, do u think this could be related to why yours cuts off.
  4. There is one firefox tweak that will make browsing be a lot smoother, and in some cases actually faster while using Firefox. One feature of firefox is when you load a page, there is a 250sec delay while the downloaded info piles up, before it actually appears on the screen. If you are on a modern computer and a broadband connection i highly recommend this tweak. Its nothing to fancy so everyone should go ahead and give it a try. Heres a description of it i found on the web: nglayout.initialpaint.delay [integer] (0) - This setting determines how many milliseconds Firefox should way before it starts to display the page contents. This brief delay allows Firefox to load and arrange the various page components as correctly as possible. The default is 250 milliseconds which isn't very long, however I recommend you set this to 0 to provide the earliest possible viewing of web content and improve the responsive feel of Firefox. The tweak removes the 250 sec delay so there is no wait until the info for the web page actually appears on screen. If someone was on a slow connection like dial-up or below 768Kbps download, some pages will slowly appear piece by peice. But hell, if you are on a 30MB download connection your page will basically almost or even already be done. I'm no expert but after using it on my 3MB/768kbps connection I love it. You can find out more about the tweak and how to do it <A HREF="http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/tips#oth_rendering">HERE</A>
  5. thanx, i was tired of those damned warning messages......

  7. I've been staying up till 6 the past 3 nights, when i go to sleep, my sister is leaving for work lol.
  8. I've also had a lot of problems with microsoft update and whenever i shut it off, i dopnt kno how to stop those small warning baloons from poping up in the corner.
  9. Yeah i forgot about shipping, people will pay less after that.
  10. This is a known fact, so you should just do your speed tests with IE instead of FF. There are a lot of tweaks that some people say increase the performance. Sorry to be lazy but i didnt look for the link just google firefox speed tweaks or something. I dont know if there are any tweaks that will actually increase ur dl speeds on ff but u can always try it out.......
  11. Cool feature, time to start adding buddies....myself first
  12. And u will only know what cablenut setting u should use by trying out the different settings, by using the cablenut setting calculator <A HREF="http://www.j79zlr.com/cablenutXP2k.php">here</A>
  13. Yeah, I agree with lewis, maybe $500 max.
  14. DSL is starting to seem like the slower end of broadband connections . But i can't wait till i get FIOS!!! :::..

  15. Nice speed. I cant wait till i move to virginia this summer to an area where i think fios is available!!!
  16. I just found mutiple articles, the record is 11 days. Just google it.
  17. The longest i have gone is two nights with no sleep, not sure the exact hours. I think i heard that the record is like nine days? Correct me if i'm wrong. I also think i heard that after eleven days u would probably die from sleep deprivation.
  18. My height is so boring, at 5'10" ur taller than most femles, shorter than most males.
  19. Do u mean u r using a usb cord instead of ethernet, u should try using ethernet, i think i may have heard of usb slowing connections.
  20. I'm 11,771 i didnt realize i came here that early, this site has come a long way.
  21. Yeah i was hopin for a new look too, but firefox has themes anyway but i was still wanting something that would feel more....next gen, but if they did that, we would probably need ALL themes to be updated
  22. it was very very accurate for me, almost the same as testmy.net, i got 2.8MB down and 700kbps upload, the same as testmy.net. I'm on a 3000/768 connection.
  23. I tried to use it but i just couldnt get used to it, besides i love my firefox theme.....
  24. I'm still confused . I have been wanting to ask this for a long time. Maybe someone should give a clear explanation or definition of connection and speed. I'll look it up on wikipedia like someone suggested until i hear from one of u. But can i atleast confirm what i think i gathered from ur posts. The speed which would be Kbps is how fast any file of any size travels on your line. And the connection or transfer rate which is kB/s is how fast ur line actually transfers a file of a paticular size.
  25. I'm only 16 but my cheap computer speakers distort at just 17000.....
