    Verizon FiOS 15/2
  1. If and when Verizon FiOS comes to your area, it won't be sneaking up on you. Verizon does a very good job of lighting up the newspapers with full page ads, TV commercials, and even go as far as hiring those mattress delivery trucks to carry their banner up and down the strteets. Thel'll park those banner trucks at street coners in the mnorning during rush hour. You'll see Verizon trucks and trucks marked 'Verizon Contractor' eveywhere for months. Once they start an install in a town or area, they go out of their way to let eveyone know. They do want to sign up as many subscribers as possible. You'll KNOW when it is in your town. Until then, you'd just be wasting your time.
  2. my speed tests are low on testmy.net. In fact anything routed to or near Dallas is slow. :::..

  3. the pic is too low of a resolution to do much more to. this is about as far as I can go without making it look fake.
  4. Just put it in a computer and run Windows on it.....without a firewall or anti virus protection!

  6. I was at work at an industrial park near Dulles Airport outside of Washington, DC. We got the news via email. I jumped in my car and went to the house to grab a TV. By the time I was headed back to work, the roads were swollen with traffic. Eight minutes to get home, seemed like an eternity to get back. Heard that the second tower was falling over the car radio. After the Pentagon was hit, the airport was shutdown. We were accustomed to hearing planes taking off and landing all the time. The silence was horrible. The only sound in the sky was an occasional fighter jet swooping over the runways at Dulles. The quiet at the airport over the next several days was so very strange. It was a horrible time.
  7. 52 goin on 23, I just got a new car and it makes me feel young again! B
  8. holy sh*t...give this guy a sticky!
  9. a Dell, an IBM, three ASUS mobo /AMD homebuilt, a Tyan mobo/Intel home built, a Supermicro mobo & case dual Xeon ....don't put much stock in store bought puters, although I do have my eye on an Alienware laptop.
  10. Yeah, you know, something like that. I got quite an education on fiber from the tech that was here for the install. He was telling me about how they are testing the hell out of this network. The work is still ongoing. I'm not too concerned about it right now. Here is a test on the site that their techs use: http://miranda.ctd.anl.gov:7123 TCP/Web100 Network Diagnostic Tool v5.3.3d click START to begin Checking for Middleboxes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Connection to my terminal server is real time, no lag whatsoever......I think I'm going to like this FIOS. God help me if I have to move away from here.
  11. I don't think it has much to do with my machine at this point. I've seen the test results go up and down all day. These guys (Verizon) are still working on the network nearby :::..

  14. I removed all tweaks and retested, then put Van's tweaks back in. Here are the results. Upload has fallen. I'm going out to get a new NIC just to see if there is a difference. Even as it is right now, it screams compared to what the performance had been on Adelphia and Skynet. I was logged into my Terminal Server at the office, and applicaions respond just as if I were on my workstation at the office. I'm a happy camper for now.
