So, I've had the internet for a while. It's pretty awesome.

In Steam, I've had a max download rate of 8.5MB/s which is pretty awesome :D

I finally got an Ethernet cable, my speed is now good:

Noice... but your speedtest image didn't show up.

I'm enjoying being capped at 256Kbps up/down right now, and I've somehow managed to go over my phone's 1.5GB data plan and rack up an additional $100. I'm annoyed.

I can't find a server fast enough for my connection :(
How does one acquire internetz that fast? You must've killed many routers, and absorbed their essence.

Speedtest is not an ideal way to test your internet, for many reasons. It's better to download a download manager and get it to download some large files from various sites, and then check your max speed... speedtest only shows 40-50Mbps down, but when I did the former it was actually going at a total of 125Mbps.

I noticed I had a much faster speedtest when the speedtest server was hosted by comcast.. as is my internet - so I switched servers to get a better idea, and then my speed dropped off a cliff.. (pings went from 6 to the 40's)

It's pointless to compare speeds, when there's fiber in town (Kansas City).

Google > All ISPs commonly known in the USA.

EDIT: Forgot to copy/paste the image.

56$ month for this crap.

I have a similar connection to yours. Videotron provides stable connection (never really stopped working in years) but at the cost of some speed. When I need a faster connection, I simply go to University and get Internet from there, via encrypted FTP if the need arises. :p

If you paid for asynchronous speeds, that's a pretty good deal right there.

I did not. At least to my knowledge... I just wanted Internet since I just moved, just got the easiest one I could. Switching from Cox pretty soon... they've kind of been cox about some things. Yes, I am a genius of wordplay. But seriously they pissed me off, shutting my Internet off for stupid shit (I downloaded a game I own through a torrent because it was faster than re-downloading it through Steam because I didn't have a hard copy, and they shut my Internet off and said the DMCA said they had to, and refused to accept that it doesn't say that anywhere [which it doesn't, nor could they tell me where it said that], or that I owned the game and can email them a copy of the registration for it. They apparently don't care about all the other shit I downloaded that I don't own though... stupid).

Consider yourselves lucky.

$100 a month for this, and it comes with a 5GB limit, which I have exceeded in the last 2 days by over 3GB.
Still 10 times faster than it was 2 years ago at least. (I'm not even kidding. I really do mean 10 times. Most people here back in 2008 would wait several minutes to upload simple content like word documents.)

This is the fastest and most reliable ISP in the country, and the best deal they have is 8Mbps for $350/month with a 10GB cap.

Notice the "Faster than 60% of LB" line. Just lol.

For some reason that made me feel much better about myself. What's LB? Libya?

    As for Github, I often frequent there, boasting about my genetic algorithm for tools-assisted speedrunning and such. I'm also pretty active on Discord, with my tag @asperatology.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, the whole earthquake + air pollution combo made me completely forget about bringing updates. I'll be sure to keep on top of things after all things are less requiring my attentions.

    I am just glad that you are OK Tom! Thank you for the update!
  • Varine Varine:
    Glad to hear you're okay! I only knew about your Github cuz I tried to follow some of you when I was learning how to program, but didn't understand any of it so kind of quit paying attention to what anyone does on it

  • Varine Varine:
    Broke the nozzle on my 3d printer and I don't have another heater block. So... I guess I'm fucked on that this weekend
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks i bet they are expensive
  • Varine Varine:
    Not really
  • Varine Varine:
    The entire hot end is like 20 dollars, I just can't get anymore until next week
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
