  2. thats the bad thing with Video files....so big I have a stack of Digital tapes that I need to put on my computer, edit, burn to DVD and then re-archive... They are like 12GB/hour and I have about 20 tapes... I should be able to edit them from an hour down to about 10 minutes (2GB) Then I should be able to archive the edited version on DVD and keep the original in its tape format... thats the plan anyway bama
  3. Like I said before... I can only dream of those type of times.... Looks good to me

  7. Hey all, Just wondering who might be from Alabama?? bama
  8. I was just wondering because of the Open Source value of it. FF has all these cool extensions that you can add and I didnt know if Thundervird had any useful extensions also. [just] Are you using outlook or express?? What version of Outlook?? I am using Outlook 2003 (11.5608.5703) I had one problem with my rules when I moved my PST folder, but after I reapplied all the rules they were fine.... bama
  9. I have been running some variant of Outlook for many moons. A friend of mine said I should take a look at Thunderbird...(makers of Firefox) Just wondering the community's thoughts... bama
  10. Thx Van Buren, I calculated my RWIN from the link you gave and came up with 58400..Close enough to your max of 64240... For now, I will probably just use 64240 until I change my OS settings...thx bama
  11. Hey Van Buren, I had tried your Version 4 settings for my Cable connection based on 3500/384. I believe it gave a pretty big window..(of course that was assuming people were running SP2) On your recomendation, I am using TCP Optmizer until I decide if I wanted to install SP2. (Optimizer uses a setting of 256960) I saw you released Version 5, so I went in and looked at it. I see you put in an SP1 version and I noticed the "3000" setting in MSS1460/SP1 dropped the Window size considerably... Just wondering the method to your madness...lol thx bama
  12. Van, I think he meant, how much does it cost per month in terms of paying your ISP? bama
  13. List of NDT test centers http://e2epi.internet2.edu/ndt/ndt-server-list.html bama
  14. I ran some tests using my onboard Nforce2 controller and an Intel Pro Management adapter.. No differences noted while surfing...and I dont do enough LAN stuff to make measurements... bama
  15. I assume these are all in combination with routers...ie Hardware firewall?? bama
  16. This is a setting that needs to be added... Right click, New, Integer, put in Name, then Value =0..Restart... Also..just ran that link using IE...Time came up at 1.5...hmmmm
  17. used about:config settings changed: network.http.pipelining = true network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 20 network.http.proxy.pipelining = true nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0 (had to add this one) gl bama ps I really like this site....Where is it physically located?
  18. Hey All, Seems a lot of people are using a website to test their Firefox optimizations. It is here: http://scragz.com/tech/mozilla/test-rendering-time.php Average of 3 tests My time before optimization: 2.687 seconds Time after optimization: 2.203 18% increase in speed.... Not bad but I dont really notice the missing .484 seconds...LOL Bamafamily
  19. they just offered another package in a different ISP.. It is 6000/768 for $53/month.. Thing is I would have to transfer both my cable TV/Phone and Internet Service... I need to look into it though... Did you just run your test a little while ago?? I am having trouble with the d/l test, but not an FTP to my ISP..??
  20. wish I could even have the option of going that fast...
  21. What about the Open source wildcard that FF has?? I use about 6 of those nice little cool extensions in my daily routines and I dont know what I would do w/o them... Sometimes I like sticking up for the little guy just because he harasses Gates and keeps him in check.. In this case, I just like the better product.... Bama ps..I dont get those PDF crashes like you mentioned Swimmer...
  22. I ahve read a lot about SP2 and see that most of the change was Security... In your opinion, is SP2 a worhty upgrade BESIDES this?? I have a nice router that keeps me hidden and I run my normalAV stuff , plus Adaware/Spybot in combo... just looking for some insight bama
