Four hours install, but blazing fast downloads. Four large NGs
downloaded from the new news server in less than two minutes. What a
difference!!!

Doubtful. Skip has an 8088. It is his cable modem that is fast...until
everyone else on his street gets one.

Yes, I should have added "connection", I'm sure Skippy wouldn't go for
one of those gold plated overbuilt Pentium jobs. His bottleneck is
a little further back than the cable modem, or the computer for that
matter...

We will all be waiting for your responses to the many questions posed
here for you.  I'll start by reminding you:

1.  What hurricane were you caught in?
2.  When do you boat?
3.  Where do you like to boat?
4.  When is the last time you boated in sal***er?
5.  When is the last time you boated in freshwater?

Those should suffice for now.  

Jeff

big mall a couple of weeks back.  Clicked up some radio stations I
like and was NOT impressed.  Did a tracert from the DOS window of

Switzerland??  How awful.  No WONDER it would only run 11K/sec.

I'm waiting for a new cable/phone/TV company to get through testing
our new neighborhood node.  They are Knology (www.knology.com) and are
still building out their new fiber system in Charleston.  I'm going to
be a beta tester shortly.  Rocket fast on the new system.  Much better

Do me a favor on your cable system......

Go to http://www.virtualtuner.com
On the left column list, click EUROPE.
When the European country list comes up, click SWITZERLAND
When the list of Swiss radio stations comes up, slide down until you
see Radio Eviva in Zurich.  Click the LIVE word on the RIGHT side
which will go directly to their RealAudio G2 feed.
Let it run 5 minutes, filling your house with polka and Swiss music.
Click Real Audio's VIEW then NORMAL window up.
Tell me what connection speed it shows along the bottom of RealAudio
playing Radio Eviva, PLEASE.


modem.  It plays 32K stereo for hours on my dialup modem to the little
ISP in N Charleston.

Anyone else that hasn't tried virtualtuner.com....they have the NICEST
list of radio stations on the net WITHOUT the CONSTANT spamming
loading and loading, like broadcast.com.  Give it a try!

> Skipper, what provider are you using?  

Multimedia Cablevision, http://www.mmckansas.com. When the technician
was installing the system, he mentioned that some Roadrunner locations
have agreed to "throttle back" transmission speed. He mentioned LA as
one of those locations.

He explained that their agreement with Roadrunner was to not throttle
back and to set up many LANs with multiple servers in the surrounding
communities. we will see. For now, it's a *lot* faster and the UUNet
newsfeed is much better than I was getting from my prior ISP.
