  1. Wow. The inside of the Ipad sure looks familiar.
  2. Is there any exclamation marks(during startup) in the Windows error logs? In Admin tools, Event viewer.
  3. Could of been worse. You could of gotten stuck with over-subscribed wireless or Laggy over-subscribed satellite.
  4. Are you trying to watch "high definition" video's? They need about 1.5Mbps(or slightly more) speed to stream cleanly. If watching normal video resolution, maybe your wireless ISP connection is dropping out? You could try some ping testing to see if you are losing packets.
  5. Wi-Fi anxiety. Real or Fake? So what do people think of this anyways? Even people emit energy of some form. Would the person who says he gets sick with wireless emissions around him, not have gone into a tirade, if he did not know(his sub-conscious knew) his female friend was a big user of wireless electronics? Just don't tell the guy that the electrical wiring in his home also emits electronic noise as well. So maybe he should move out into the desert with no electricity and a water tower. Oh and all those satellites bombarding the earth in radio waves on various frequencies. And the weather doppler radar dish sending out beams of energy to reflect off of rain or snow or mountains. Even the Sun sends various waves of energy that hit the Earth in low to high energy levels. latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-hometown-santa-fe28-2010mar28,0,2528354.story Heres another good article. And an attached pic. Daily mail link of the story below.. http://www.quackometer.net/blog/2007/04/electrosensitivity-caused-by-wi-fi-and.html http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-450995/The-woman-needs-veil-protection-modern-life.html
  6. So I saw another ad on this site that was like Swoopo. Interesting how people are coerced into entering their credit card information for something that is charging extra stuff onto their card. Read the details of what you are actually buying. But apparently they are on Ebay(as an ad at the bottom, I guess) and people click the link thinking that they can just enter their information and buy a product with no strings attached. Seems to be spreading like a plague with various names on the Internet. A whole pile of information via user replies. http://www.pennyauctionwatch.com/2010/03/is-swipebids-a-scam/ http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100301221226AAa2Al2 A complaint about swipebids.com http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?t=126480 here is a quote on how people are being duped by their own ways.
  7. You could try to contact Saskatchewan consumer protection for some help. Maybe the Government could give a crap about what SaskTel is dishing out to people. http://www.justice.gov.sk.ca/cpb The Consumer Protection Branch is a regulatory agency that investigates consumer complaints, answers consumer inquiries, provides advice and direction to the public on how to resolve their complaint, educates consumers and businesses on their rights and responsibilities, and conducts compliance audits of licensees. An interesting blog post. http://countrytowns.ca/blog/index.php/2009/06/27/p39 Also here is the SaskTel news item. The 100% sure sounds good until you hear how they are gong to achieve that. It's one thing to be on satellite in the middle of nowhere with near zero population, but it's another thing to be in a small town or on the edge of it and get stuck with satellite. http://www.sasktel.com/about-us/news/2009-news-releases/sasktel-invest-220million-in-network.html Here is the latest government news release version. Maybe you could find a Saskatchewan government contact somewhere on the site there. http://www.gov.sk.ca/news?newsId=4b5f0610-81f3-4f9d-a1bd-445e71eff430
  8. SaskTel Internet powered by Xplornet/Telesat/Hughesnet is satellite. So those that converted their billing over to Sasktel from Xplornet and then still get billed by Xplornet are supposed to get a minimum speed of 825Kbps. It's part of the SaskTel corrupt 100% high speed Internet coverage in Saskatchewan. Some small towns were supposed to get bids from other third parties for wireless towers(WISP's). Otherwise they might get suck with satellite in the long run.
  9. If ya want to see some pics of Mt. St. Helens in Washington State exploding..... Almost anniversary time again. 30 Years ago(May 18, 1980).
  10. Here in British Columbia and Washington State, we are waiting for the "cascadia subduction zone" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cascadia_subduction_zone , to let loose. I think we have about 200 more years to go. Give or take. Some areas are expected to turn to quicksand and sink the homes on them(well since Richmond is a big/long sand bar in the Fraser River). Other areas the Washington State Natives know not to live on, due to old tales of tsunamis in their legends. Iceland has a Volcano coming to life right now. http://reykjavik.mydestinationinfo.com/en/hekla-volcano-webcam ,This one is supposed to ignite a main volcano. And that may send an entire glacier of water streaming to whatever area it decides to go to. The earth is a amazing thing if you look at it in geological terms. But the sideways shaking earthquakes are the real killers. Parts of Chile headed west by many yards to the west in their massive quake.
  11. Unless Quest needs the money to add thousands of miles of Fiber Optics to the node, all is needed is a hardware change out to VDSL2 from ADLS2+. Even line bonding will increase a users speeds. click to enlarge.

  13. I think tommie's is growing by the day. Must be growing season down south. Or else it's that squatter on top of his sig. I made mine about 78 high by 500 wide. And other than that annoying seal keeps popping up. The next version I might make it a bit lower.
  14. OK. OK. You and that fancy number crunching. I only did 'stupid math class' in high school. Was nice to not have to do any of that fancy math that would of failed me in a couple of months, especially when I would of walked out the door after failing many tests.
  15. I count Gololont as number 70,000 , by counting backwards of the newest users join list . Manaftergod joined on.... Mar 19 2010 09:40 PM.. And there been about 2 dozen signup's or so since. minus the 6 users over 70,000 right now.
  16. Is that on the 50MB test? Until CA3LE finishes the forum conversion/tweaking. The 50MB is currently a registered user function, and that is currently not available due to needing to be signed in for the speed test. And you can't sign in on the speed test board at this time. The 25MB test is a un-registered user test. The 6MB upload test is also currently for a registered user.
  17. From what I've read is that you don't see an increase in speed, but you can pull down more data at a time, as it splits the data between both connections. Think of it like a 1/2" hose(single ISP) compared to a 1" hose(Dual ISP). More volume can come in, without an increase(pressure) in 'speed test' speed. Great for sharing the connection with multiple users and if one connection should become unavailable, you default automatically over to the live connection.
  18. Would the timing of the RAM affect crash ability? Just looking at the specs of the two types of RAM.. I suppose if you put one 2gig set in by itself and test and then put the other 2 gig set in by itself and test, is their stability? The voltage is also not matching in the two sets. another thing to try is to make sure that each RAM stick pair is paired on the motherboard slots. So the two different sticks are not fighting as they share the data between them. Something like one set in slot 1 and 3 and the other set in slot 2 and 4.
  19. Look through the forum categories. Pick a category. Pick a sub-category if needed. Click "start a new topic" And put a title that will give a quick indication of what the thread is about. Or do it the easy way and just post your question in "General discussion" and a Mod will move it if needed. Near the bottom of the main forum page , just above the user names online, click on "Today's active content" to see all the latest posts. It is set to 24 hours by default, but you can make it one week or more.
  20. Depends on who your ISP is and what your purchased package rate is. You have real good speeds for the 2Mbps package(xcite). Is see pldt.net has made a name of myworldmydsl.com
  21. Interesting. It may trigger an addiction to some people who think that they may get a deal for pennies on the dollar, when they actually don't, due to having to buy auction credits. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swoopo A better explanation of the system.
  22. There is also in user , settings , forum , check "watch every post I reply too".
  23. See that button up top, just above the first post? "Watch this topic." Then you can manage the threads you are following. Probably not what you want, but close enough for now.
  24. Since this story features ViaSat, it's going here. Good to see that Satellite Internet is finally admitting the problems it is facing with over-subscription. People want a consistent connection and speeds near(80%?)to what the package describes. Nothing worse than having your speed drop to a third of what it should be. http://www.spacenews.com/satellite_telecom/100318-satellite-broadband-has-reputation-problem.html
