  1. Buntz...I'm just the new-proud-owner-of-extra-money-to-pay-each-month for my 12/1 Cox Premier. I've not anything to complain of *tonight*...re connection dropping every 3 minutes... as happens too often..I am however not getting 'typical' results at either of the related '20MB's avail' download sites...from *here*. If I jet to say...next door to 'em? In my Tele-transporter (which is also slightly broken)...I'd blow their doors off ...but wouldn't we all!!!
  2. I'm assuming (not ever a good idea ) that you're referring to my 'connection woes' not my speed inconsistancies on the high-end of anyone. So, ya tommie...Since Cox service reps on the phone vary so much as to proficiency, meaning the only typical trouble-shooting and suggestions made are well-meaning, but similar to these: "Have you power cycled your modem? "We can schedule and send a service call. "Well you could Upgrade" (After I *did* up my tier to 12/1 on Dec. 3rd and bought the in-house line coverage too, naturally I was concerned about not reaching my tier...and my dnld didn't budge...that was first and formost. You know what I did to fix that...ethernet NIC. Tardy about that too...but I WAS gettin my Cox 6/512 on usb. When Cox 'gave us' "Crazy Fast" of up to 7M...well, it didn't budge but I wasn't overly concerned....that's the upshot on 'speed'...which you probably weren't asking about.) Cox found time for me finally, re:'disconnection woes' in the shape of a Level II tech truck-roll many months back...he found ONLY tiny things to fix...(I wish he'd 'questioned' the wisdom of my usb vs NIC at that time.) But he was good about some little things like fitting replacements in this old complex...etc. Nothing major changed the conn. prob. for long. I moved my office got the NIC on my own hook, as you know...that seemed to solve disconnects for awhile...my calls to them ere sometimes like this: "Looks good from here...and "You're getting your caps in speed..maybe over them" (one of those times...after the upgrade that is) I didn't even have the modem plugged in!) I guess 'perfect' can also be 'flakey' and I should know from personal experience As I said in back earlier somewhere...It's been good today...all day, 'knock plywood' I'm not going to agonize when I can just pull the plug and fire up my dial-up if cable doesn't behave. Nyah onya cable Inter-Not My 'belt and suspenders' type-explanations are my forte. You'll soon tire of asking me questions hahahaha
  3. Howdy again, I get this below with 20MB at 7:40-ish on a Tues. eve in Scts.AZ: 7:39 PM 1/2/2007 From: http://www.testmy.net/tools/test/d_load.php?&st=st&tt=1&ta=1&top=000&out_src=20MB'>http://www.testmy.net/tools/test/d_load.php?&st=st&tt=1&ta=1&top=000&out_src=20MB :::..

It wouldn't be the 'accuracy of the test, and I'm not complaing 'cause I'm hip to the trip, but, doesn't reflect my usual Cox tier of 12/1, as both main TMN servers do, with 12,260 dnlds. What more can I say/do to dispell the myth that girls can't be 'fast' given the right circumstances l: This 20MB site ust be in Paduka
  4. Yes sir, no ma'am...Roger that...Over?
  5. The topic is 'what's the fastest uve gone' I guess you don't need know that I get WAY better at "2-Wire". How'd ya llike 72.73MB and or 'Infinitely' fast speeds, also at 2-wire...no, not cached...no, I doubt if they're 'next door' as the Scottsdale mirror has to be..but, 'accuracy' isn't in question...other variables are. Go figure, I figure. http://www.2wire.com/bandwidth/meter.php? TMN records ALL my 'mirror' and Server 1 & 2 results...since both getting the 12/1 on Dec. 3rd / Cox and various hardware and our usual set of 'tweaks' here...I'm seeing those caps. NP there. Dlewis? I *cannot* dnld any file from the 'scottsdale mirror' site you've set up...except for the 1MB one...due to some site calculations (I guess) as to my appearant speed. I've shown tommie (and the gang' the message I get when I DO attempt to dnld any more than 1mb. And they're still incredulous. Hahaha (maybe) But thanks...if you question any thing..I'll gladly post what I get if I click more'n 1MB. I don't have copy handy..it's in the forum somewhere..and I'm not itchin' to see more congrats for what people think is some phoney results. That's kind of a no-brainer for me, eh? Living in Scottsdale, as I do. I'm not going to try and post more on that unless dlewis23 requests it, ok? Thanks for the site! And thank you to all:' Buntz, h2haxor, tommie & last but not at all least dlewis23, Who commented:"nice speed" Tommie and one other I've addressed directly to mention my bad luck with connection in Cox for 1 3/4 years almost, at my particular location...Cox certainly knows that...hahaha! I'll get to the suggested speed test later T. man I had to drop back to my little dial-up off and on over the last 2 days...cable good almost all day today. Knock plywood %%- <shamrock P.S. dlewis23, I'm *not* complaining re: upload doesn't work for me at dlewis23-2, but facts are the upload link won't work for me...I get forwarded to a page that's not the usual 'cannot find'' IE msg. Again, be glad to try an upload there, but...she's a no woik fo' me yet on that score :

  7. Good afternoon TMT'ers...temporarily using my Cox connection...I've 'forced' the dynamic IP to set a different gateway/IP and we'll see. TI couldn't resist posting the download speed I just got at dlewis23-2's mirror just now..I don't want to change my 'signature' so I'll just paste it...I 'm not cruisin' for a bruisin' nor wanting to get into discussions about *why* I can only use 1MB at that site..as it's SO close..it reads my speed at an unreal rate if I try more than 1MB and won't run...I get a 'special message' instead 1:27 PM 1/2/2007 :::..

  8. They say: "You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose"
  9. That's all extra good too tommie...I try not to be too fussy. The venison, ya! I think what grandpa *may* be sayin' with all those country eats on the groaning board is country ham...which this city slicker very seldom sees!
  10. Buntz, thanks for asking for peons the 'wherezit' on stats...very, very cool page! nice page PHP thanks for posting it...just reiterating...for us real, cute peons http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?action=stats
  11. Oh grandpa...I made a nice mess of stuff, not quite that selection but I'd not turn up my nose even at 'something they called ham' hahaha. Yum! Mine was good NYE and NYD...it's 9:13pm...and I'm still breathin' so it's a good day...
  12. grandpa...I had to revert to dialup last night...my cable..oh so good for awile after I moved my pc and stuff to the inlet for the connection. (inlet?) Inny who...I seem to be having to tinker with this dratted Cox cable so, when it's good...it's very good and when it's bad it's horrid. Maybe it's also got a 'curl on it's forehead' somewhere I can't see. I thought took out all the 'kinks' but turns out not...I get pretty tired of fiddling with it...but then that's what we do in the forum beyond have fun and socialize...which helps a lot!!! Not a bad New Year's Eve though...oddly enough. Hope yours was good
  13. Actually, *we* don't know...but thanks tommie

  15. tdawnaz? I'm getting dizzy I saw your post re: "igor=me" (not) and hahaha..ya, well..I was pretty friendly I thought...and AFAIK, he's not posted again. Hmmm.

  16. Woo Woo Biker!! Ya! 40K @ end of the month dlewis? That'd be good...I'll still be breathing, prolly and hip hip hooray for whomever! I hear ya tommie re: get more friends...'networking', now there's an old-fashioned concept
  17. Gee tdawnaz...I'm close, but mostly a hermit except for these boards...and of course, not wearing clothes has it social limitations, even in the land of khaki shorts and camp shirts Oh but I may just break outta my shell and do something nutty one day dawn...
  18. You're all so cute!!! H.N.(2007Y. Bye bye 2006 Bulgarian: x
  19. I reiterate from earlier comments re: *my* oddball high speeds...No Powerboost for Cox outside of Virgina AFAIK..but there, they've got Comcast competing so...that's why. Here in AZ? Hmm..is Heck getting chilly yet?

  22. Happy New Year to grandpa and all...Huge Happiness at just staying at tonight and listening to a couple new 'sides'. Brian Wilson's 'Smile' album for one, and the mix-mash by original producer for Beatles..the 'Love' albom..well done all...if you're reading this, you also made it through 2006 Cheers to us all.
  23. That looks totally yummy water..copy/pasted the recipe...I coined a word the other day: 'chollie' = cooked cabbage. Feel free to use it..hahaha. Thanks for lovely recipe. Our tradition back in the day was, as you've read Norwegian Lutefisk and Lefse. But not this new year, being somewhat lazy and staying around, There's no place like it
