    CA3LE got a reaction from mudmanc4 in Divorce because of smoking   
    You were smoking before you were married, he married a smoker.
     
    If he wants to divorce you over something like that, you should quit smoking and then divorce HIM.  
     
    What a terrorist.  Holding divorce over your head.  For smoking... and he met you as a smoker.
     
    "Now that I've quit smoking, I feel like a new woman!  I'm ready to give you that divorce you were talking about."  
     
    Seriously though, smoking takes 3 days to quit, that's it.  3 days of being on edge and irritable but you can do it.  
     
    Personally, I love smoking.  I still allow myself occasional cigarettes and puff on Mark10's in between... I go for months without smoking a real cigarette.  First one after a while always tastes terrible but I still love it.  I can enjoy a pack every now and then, finish it and be fine having a few drags off my Mark10's after.  Trading one addiction for another, yes... like I said, I love smoking.  E-Cig's don't make me feel like crap... if I have to smoke I feel that I'm much healthier using ecigs.  When I smoked regular cigarettes on a regular basis I had pre-hypertension... my blood pressure is perfect now.
     
    I don't believe that Nicotine is the enemy here.  It's everything else that comes with combustion.

    CA3LE reacted to djk44883 in Who testmy.net is   
    Thanks for your reply.  I just didn't see any ads to know who supports the test.  Still you claim "proprietary method is proven to help identify issues other speed tests fail to detect."  without telling up what issues it helps me identify.  Can I really find info on a propriety method?  It just sounds vague and generalized. 
     
    All that aside, I do find testmy.net to be one of the more reliable "speed test" sites I use. THANK YOU for all the work you have put into it.

    Update: The new upcoming version of TestMy.net will not fail on all major updated browsers.  I've implemented service worker which enables TestMy.net offline... obviously you won't be able to test in that state but it is helping me to make this correct and more useful for you (and myself).  Gives me abilities as a developer that I've never had before.  
     
    I've run numerous batches of tests, purposely disconnecting the internet.  The new version has never failed.  It will log those events too, doesn't right now but it will.  I like your idea for implementation...
     
     
    It will detect when you're online, wait.. check again to make sure it wasn't just intermittent... then test again when it feels it's able to..... might not be able to complete the entire test still but it will try then possibly fail again and restart the re-try process.
     
    I can tell the averaging and database listing programs as a whole to ignore exactly "zero" so it doesn't effect host averages or flood public results... I don't know what would happen other wise so better plan for it.  Especially since that's a point for clients to purposely negatively affect hosts numbers.  (I always want to limit the input received but users... sorry users.  Damn bots and hackers ruined your rep.)  ...that idea provides a simple way to implement without having to add databases or change database structure.  I like that.   --- database structure changes can be an extreme headache, especially since I promised since the beginning that I'd retain all of your old results.
     
    I'll keep developing.  The update I'm on right now started purely as a design venture, the more major feature rich updates are still planned...but I've been stumbling on so many answers it's become far beyond just what people see at this point.  There is still so much planned, I'm only including the features that I feel are ready.   ... I'd rather be on this new site (all day long).  I make TMN first as something I want to use... but I'm hoping to attract more than people of just own own mindset.  Anyone still reading this is probably of that mindset.  Most will never get as far as you.  I want the other 98% to get it too.  Hopefully this gets a little closer.
     
    For people who have been long time visitors, keep your old browsers on virtual machines.  I need your help testing old browsers but also keep in mind that I'm developing for the future, I'm no longer concerned about lagging browsers or wasting my development time around their inconsistencies.  I target technologies native to the most popular browsers across the board.  If one browser has janky implementation, I may still release it as long as it's not detrimental to the test results or experience.  IMHO, Safari is the new IE right now.  Annoying.  Chrome, Firefox, Chrome on iOS and Android (period) are the best right now.  I expect Safari to catch up, sorry, it's not on the developer when everyone else agrees.
     
    By the way, I straight up killed most old browsers when I went full SSL.  Full SSL is 100% necessary for the future of what TMN is doing.  Sorry old browsers.  Trust me, I took a hit with traffic.  When I see software changing ads in browser or including ads to pages I don't have ads on... that showed me early why we need SSL (https).  With SSL that can only happen if the cypher is cracked. 
     
    To be honest at first I thought, why would TMN need https?  Nobody is buying anything from my site or really sending anything truly secure.  Uh, think again.  Many people may use the same passwords.  Hackers can grab that information as you login at a public wifi and then try the same email address and password on google, facebook, ebay, amazon, etc... till they get a hit.  So stupidly easy for hackers.  Not only that but third party ads may be doing things you don't want... far outside of the scope of common practice (of which some people already may not already want).  And again, a third party program can also edit your webpages and add their own content.  Above all, they want to make money, usually ad or code insertion is the intent.  With the latest SSL people can't do the same malicious stuff.  Not to say it can't be done again, it can always be done again.  Nothing made by man can be protected from man.  What is created from one man's mind can always be decoded in another's.  We just need to evolve with the changes. 
     
    way off the subject... AI teaching itself to make new cyphers and then keeping the true keys from us, that worries me the more I think about it.  An AI or AIs will invent their own language that we can't possibly understand in our lifetimes.  It will be so efficient that humans can't understand it because we don't work well enough, lol.  Take the highest level of cryptography that you can think of exponentially increase that.  And then realize that the program that creates it may be so obscure that it could be hiding information from us, making us feel secure when it really has all the power.  I say let us humans keep making mistakes and figuring out each other's mistakes and improving naturally.  We as humans should always in great detail fundamentally understand our software and hardware changes... it should never be obscured to the point that no human can understand.  I worry that we'll let computers do our programming and designing to the point that we'll have little understanding of what's truly under the hood or how to control it.  "let the computer figure out how to do that better, it will make it perfect." -- it's cool until it starts talking in a language you can't decode and decides you're not a part of understanding that language simply because you as a human aren't optimal to the system.  To a computer, even our VERY best languages are stupid because they aren't optimal and so that's the first thing to go in my opinion.  This has already happened by the way, just not to a serious degree.  A real AI will be ahead of our moves before we even start moving.  Once you know it's happening, it's too late.  I'm have to be high on the AI's list now.         (haha)
     
    I believe our community here is made up of people who set the standard for their own communities in regards to all things tech.  We should set the standard by example.  Have your main machines always updated and encourage friends to do the same.  Hardware and software.  Especially software.  And especially right now because there have been so many major updates that EVERY browser is agreeing on.  They don't normally agree like this.  Over 21 years developing in the browser and I've never seen such wide adoption of so many cool new features.  What a great time to develop.

    I'll keep this in mind when I start on the database searching improvements.  Development on that will start shortly after the new beta is released.
     
    What I was planning on doing is having it aggregate the user agent information.  So it will search through your result details, group the user agents and allow you to do more detailed searches.  You'll also be able to select multiple identifiers.  So you can select "Android & iOS" for instance or select the inverse to see only desktop and laptop results.

    Looks like there was already a result in the database with the same testID.  It won't allow an overwrite of the same ID.  It's supposed to check for that, I'll look and see why it didn't.  Maybe I turned that off at some point and didn't realize... Even with that check disabled it's extremely rare to conflict with other testID's.

    The current report only provides the option to include identifiers, however, it would be vastly more helpful and make the reporting more meaningful to be able to "exclude" certain devices.  
    For example:  You have iPhone, iPad, Android, devices.  These would not expect to have the same download upload speeds even though their ISP may have the same name.  This in turn skews the results up or down depending on how many mobile devices are using the same ISP.  The current version would require you to go through and select each area except mobile devices clicking all the way down the list.  Would be better to exclude and select mobile devices (or a better term hand held devices), or iphone ipad, android, kindle, etc.  Leaving only traditional devices (desktop, laptop, thins)

    CA3LE reacted to guyhoghton in Fail gracefully when very bad connection   
    Hi. As the above posts are 2 or more years old I'm wondering whether the suggestions discussed got implemented? Like some of the other commenters above I am trying to gather evidence about an unstable ADSL connection that often goes so slow that it becomes unusable for a time. I am running auto tests one after the other to get a week of evidence, but I often find when I check that the browser is just displaying a message "Cannot contact server, try again later" or words to that effect. On checking the results I find that the last result was several hours ago and it was a good speed. So I surmise that the connection swung down to zero or a few kilobits per second, and when TestMy tried to do its next test the browser couldn't talk to the server and that was the end of the auto testing, because presumably the browser polls the server not vice versa. Otherwise the drop-out might have happened during a test, with the same outcome.
     
    Was there some fix to this that got added to later versions of the auto test? It's frustrating because I can't record the occurrence of the very thing I am trying to prove - that the connection becomes unusable. If this is still on the developers' to-do list could I make a suggestion for a solution design?
     
    1. Have the client code that polls for a test implemented in a hidden frame, not the frame that displays the result, so that the polling code doesn't get nuked if the request to the server times out, and will request the next test as usual when the time comes.
     
    2. Server does not abort the auto test if results stop coming through. Instead it records a speed result of ZERO each time a test result is expected but is not received, after waiting for a period of grace to allow for network delays.
     
    I do hope you will consider this or some similar solution, or if you have already implemented a solution perhaps we could investigate why I'm getting the experience I described above. Many thanks.

    If I am not logged on to TestMy, and switch to Mulltithread mode, the [Linear] button at the top right does not work.  Neither does the 'Disable Multithreading' button.
     
    Steps to reproduce:
    Log out of TestMy (or open an incognito/private browser). Click Multithread at the top-right. Click the 'Enable Multithreading' button. Click [Linear] at the top-right. Click the 'Disable Multithreading' button.  
    It will continue to display "MultiI Select" at the top-right, sometimes even with the British flag:
     

     
    I'm not sure if it's related, but if I perform the above steps and then go to the Download page and click the 'Express Test!' button, it display a "Not Found" error page:

    CA3LE got a reaction from Stephen Suess in After upgrade from 330 to 500, testmy.net results way slower   
    You may be seeing the same thing I experienced when I tried to upgrade a while back.  I'll have to do some digging to find the topic.
     
    What ended up happened in my case... I reverted back to my old package.  Although the new package was faster on the top end it had such a slow ramp up after the upgrade that I favored my old package.
     
    The new package required a new modem (16 channel).  As with many previous cable internet speed upgrades over the years I was excited to upgrade, newer modem usually means great things.  But that's just not at all what I observed with TestMy.net.  Other tests, especially speedtest.net, will show higher results.  They don't work like TestMy.net... they combine threads to achieve the highest possible speed.  Good to know but it only shows part of the performance picture.  For a multithread comparison within TMN you should try TestMy.net's multithread speed test - make sure you disable the option when you're done to test as you normally do.
     
    My conclusion was that the newest, "fastest" packages from Comcast we're not what I was expecting.  Again, fast top end but really slow starting out.  It's like having a Lamborghini that can only drive in 4th-6th gear... eventually it will win a LONG race but for most stuff it just didn't stack up to the slower package with less threads.  The "slower" package jumps off the line like a Tesla.  Instantly up to speed with little ramp up at all.  By the time the 16 channel modem would ramp up my "slower" modem/package was already done with the race ...and the next one.
     
    Sometimes higher package speed doesn't equate to higher results on a single computer.  It might just equate to more computers and devices that can be aggressively pulling resources without affecting each others speed as much.  Personally, I favor my off the line performance more than the top end or being able to serve more devices.  Especially with how bad it was in this case.  I switched back and my results instantly fell back into line with the performance curve I expect.  By the way, I'm still easily able to serve over 20 devices on my connection.
     
    That was the first time a cable upgrade disappointed me and needed to be switched back to previous settings.  Hey... at least I saved money because I no longer needed a new modem and the "slower" package is cheaper.  TestMy.net saved me money by showing me that I actually performed better on a cheaper package.

    My conclusion was that the newest, "fastest" packages from Comcast we're not what I was expecting.  Again, fast top end but really slow starting out.  It's like having a Lamborghini that can only drive in 4th-6th gear... eventually it will win a LONG race but for most stuff it just didn't stack up to the slower package with less threads.  The "slower" package jumps off the line like a Tesla.  Instantly up to speed with little ramp up at all.  By the time the 16 channel modem would ramp up my "slower" modem/package was already done with the race ...and the next one.
     
    Sometimes higher package speed doesn't equate to higher results on a single computer.  It might just equate to more computers and devices that can be aggressively pulling resources without affecting each others speed as much.  Personally, I favor my off the line performance more than the top end or being able to serve more devices.  Especially with how bad it was in this case.  I switched back and my results instantly fell back into line with the performance curve I expect.  By the way, I'm still easily able to serve over 20 devices on my connection.
     
    That was the first time a cable upgrade disappointed me and needed to be switched back to previous settings.  Hey... at least I saved money because I no longer needed a new modem and the "slower" package is cheaper.  TestMy.net saved me money by showing me that I actually performed better on a cheaper package.

    It started out Rustycrew . At Pocono race rusty wallace signed my shirt . To my honorary crew member Rusty Wallace. Then later  I shortened it to Rustcrew. My weimeraner tore the shirt up when she was a puppy.

    To do the upload test, it seems to first download data. This can be very slow.
     
    Would it not be possible to generate the test data in the browser, with some checksum that has to be different from the last 10000 checksums and is checked on the server?

    CA3LE reacted to pastor1ray in hello   
    I want to say hello  and greetings from The Preacher with Priors. I am not very smart about computers but I use  them a lot and they are important in the work I do. I am a pastor of a flock of people that most pastors would shudder to think they would have to deal with, mostly heroin addicts, other addicts, anyone from gang to homeless you name it. No tithing people, no church anymore. A pastor is not the keeper of a building he is supposed to be a SHEPHERD and be willing to go to any measure to protect and guide those in his flock. I am a guitarist and a singer, I dont really know how to do either of those things either, but I have been given a sound, and everything I do is for those who I have been given and for the One who has given me this life. I am 65 and fully ready for another full throttle several decades of life. I will probably be someone here that needs more advice than I can offer as to computers, and of that I apologize. But in order to do what I do I need the help. Right now I am hampered by Logitech garbage webcam that never worked, stopping me from making important videos. I invite anything anyone wants to ask though about what I do, the Word, any of it. Don't make the mistake of thinking you will get an answer like asking another pastor though, because, you will not.
  24. Thanks

    CA3LE reacted to Gympie QLD in Hello from Oz   
    Greetings from QLD Australia. I've just read through some of the FAQ's in your forum, and am impressed by your responses to the usual questions regarding different speed test results from different testing sites. Very informative. I have been using mostly ozspeedtest.com. I have just upgraded from a 25Mbps plan to a 50, and have been enthusiastically testing my new speeds (FTTN, some copper in my street). For your information, the ozspeedtest and Testmy.net results correlate very closely in multiple tests . . . they also confirm what my ISP (Telstra) said I could expect (about 46 Mbps). After reading through your forum, I have decided to use Testmy.net as my go to speed test from now on, with an occasional reference to the other site for comparison. Thank you for providing this valuable, independent service.
