Nope, those are all good speeds.

Jim, I know that you use Comcast right? Did you see your bill this month? They jacked the price up to $7 for their modem rental.

Time to go get some work done around this place.

I don't use Comcast.  I use MetroCast.  My daughter had Comcast and dumped it for Verizon Fios.  She couldn't stand the outages where she lives.  I have a Motorola modem (can't remember the model) and it's not rented either.  It's MetroCast's modem but somehow they forgot they owned it. :nuts:   Their loss is my gain.  I am having issues with it disconnecting at times so I have bought another but just haven't had time to get it installed.

I'm in to the service pack installations now.  That will take the rest of the day...  sigh

I'm thinking martini tonight.  I had wine last night.  I try to mix it up a bit but not at the same time.  Bad juju to do that.

I learned once that you shouldn't drink red wine, white wine, beer and whiskey all within a 5 hour period unless you want to feel bad the next morning. I got to say though, the whiskey I drank was very good and real smooth, Forty Creek, ever hear of it? Its Canadian. Got it cheap at the border.

Yes, ZG, a military man once told me that. ;D I think it was the wines though.

I have a back scratcher that looks like a little hand on a stick. It's pretty sweet.
In the days of my youth, I was told what it means to be a man.

Paint it red, that's worth 20 MB in itself.   ;)

Guess that's alright?  All I know is that the ping is good, no idea what a good down/up speed is.
