    Loads up fine in opera 33 on my computers.  


    TestMy.net requires javascript for most things.  Add [*.]testmy.net and tmnstatic.com (which is a domain used to serve much of the static js content) to your JavaScript exceptions.  You should trust TMN by now.



    Under Opera Preferences > Websites > Javascript Exceptions


    Personally... I'd never disable javascript.  You're seriously crippling your internet experience if you do.  Nearly every site uses javascript these days to some degree... you may be missing out on much more than you realize if you turn js off for all sites.

    i use an older version of  opera (presto) for reading mostly text & some images, and RSS feeds. i'm still pissed that opera removed most of its features when it jumped to webkit.

  2. web... damn the javascript in tbhis new board code is madly slow in opera. and the reply box doesn't work with javascript turned off. wtf


    ^ i know it's bothersome but isn't that the point of permissions, to avoid misuse of files by hackers or other people who may be using your computer? although it is weird that an OS upgrade would make you lose your permissions if you usually login with admin/root privileges

    No, mine looks just like yours because I ran system restore. It's happened twice where Microsoft Store just altered my account, changed the user name and required me to use my Hotmail account to login to my computer. I want to prevent that instead of reacting to it.





    Let me get this straight.... IF someone buys anything from Windows Shop, he/she bascially installed online-DRM for Windows 10 , like Diablo 3's server crashing DRM?!?

    How is this ever a good idea? Someone should come up for hack for this, or something to completely remove Windows Shop files on a harddrive. From my point of view, it's Malware now.

  4. so i spend a whole night tinkering with settings and saw no significant increase,at least not through the ethernet cable. called the other tech support number in the morning, and spent a rather challenging 18 minutes talking to a woman with a stereotypical indian-accent on a bad phoneline. it seems that downgrading my router's firmware solved the problem for whatever reason. reached 99mbps(download/upload) on starhub's own ookla test through the ethernet connection WITHOUT bypassing the shitty router.

    then i tested it on a USA server on testmy.net, and... the results vary. 11-20mbps for download,5-11 for upload.

    however wifi speeds still can't reach the maximum of 75mbps for my hardware(~12mbps on the ookla test). according to other subscribers of starhub , the DIR-850L router provided can't obtain optimal speeds with the 802.11n standard used on my notebook & tablet. the "best" solution is to spend  200+ SGD on an asus router,and ask a service tech to recognise the MAC address of the new router. meh.

  5. okay. i finally got about talking to starhub's tech support. apparently i can only get up to ~98 mbps IF i directly connect to the ONT/modem AND test my speed with a custom Ookla speedtest on their own website(broadbandspeedtest.starhub.com/speedtestv3.1/). ack. i tried speedtest.net again and got an even slower speed(2.4mbps) than before, but with a slightly higher upload speed of 16mbps. changing the testing server to viewquest got me 94mbps.

    a mercury speed test on www.starhub.com got me ~7.5 mbps. not much of difference compared to connecting through the router.

    he also mentioned i should try changing my "channel" when connecting to the router, and gave me a different number to call for router issues. i assume he meant the wifi frequency "channels", which shouldn't be a bloody problem since i connect through the ethernet port on my laptop. i never expect wifi speeds to be optimal. there's probably over 12 wifi connections near my home(not including any hidden one's i'm not snooping up) , crowding up the airwaves...

    39 SGD/mth for 200mbps, with an option to use 100mbps cable internet. my hardware can't really support more than 100mbps though.

    actual speed is similar to Mobileone's 100mbps subscription, but lower upload speeds for some reason. and for once in my lifetime, speedtest.net gave a me a similar result!
    btw, could you make this new forum code work without javascript/webkit?

  7.  tech support told me they'll get back to me on the previous hiccup, but never did. similar problem on the same day. took about 20 minutes before i could load twitter and google, but mobileone's own website couldn't load for some insane reason,and  then it failed to load any more pages for several minutes. now i'm getting a stable enough connection to load test.my.net. apparentally my download speed should be ~5mbps now . doesn't make any sense. pretty sure 10PM GMT+8 in singapore on a weekday is not peak period, and there's no holiday. heck ,we have the fewest holidays in the whole world. this is really pushing my lower than low expectations.



  8. 2nd day in a roll that mobileone has trouble connecting in the interwebz, during non-peak hours. most annoying part was that both times, the phone operator told me there was "nothing wrong with my connection" when not a single page could load for 40 mintues ++(it only connected after they finally called their techs).  each time i had to tell them to go contact their technicians already, i'm not resetting my modem again and again just to amuse their victim-shaming habits,  and every single time i had to remind them i don't use a router at all. they keep blaming my non-existent imaginary router! fuck ths shit. i'm changing isp when this contract's over. 


    unfortunately all the consumer isps on the isle seem to have have agreed on a minimum price for fibre broadband, so i can't find a cheaper deal right now. if this isn't a monopoly, i dunno wtf is.

  9. it's in my signature now. i'm actually "okay" with this speed, since they used to to charge me 10 SGD more per month for 10mbps cable, before i finally got a fiber line. what i'm not okay with, is that they keep doing server maintenance without ever informing their customers and posting the schedule on their website. and the tech support is also never informed about their maintenance timings.

    also i got more uptime when i was using an ADSL line back in 2011.

  10. https://testmy.net/compID/16062578520108

    Avg. download: 7.2 mbps.
    Max. download: 34.3 mbps .

    Advertised max. speed: 100 mbps,
    for home fiber broadband, 1 year, from MobileOne.

    Paid: 39 singapoor dollars/month

    Feels kind of ripped off, since there's an isp which cost 10 dollars less per month for the same speed soon after i signed up. the competitor's tech support is terrible though, as in i'm almost never able to get through the line in under 1 hour.
    and the supposedly cheaper 2-year deals would force me to pay for tv channels i don't watch after the first few months.
