Look an awful lot like the new 4od website (www.4od.com) <--- Might not work outside the UK

Maybe they got the same company to do it?   Grin

Well, I actually felt kinda good about this until I saw Stephen's... Now I'm just jealous!!

Please don't be...

You get very spoiled with a 100meg connection, and when it isn't working at full speed, and you find yourself on anything below 50-70, you get VERY annoyed, and people just don't understand how, or why your frustrated with downloading at ONLY 6500kb/s via HTTP.  undecided   Cool

Oh, thank you - I feel so much better now.   Wink

The way I have it worked out, is that if a company offers you a 20MB connection, this means, if you CONNECT at that 20mb speed, you will actually DOWNLOAD at 10% of that speed, and upload at 10% of your DOWNLOAD speed.

That seems to be pretty accurate. Well, maybe 5% of what's advertised... but potato hand grenade. Y'know... tongue

The local look:



The more realistic view:



Rated for 10 to 20 Mbps *AS ADVERTISED*. However, everything in the advertising is misleading. Purposefully misleading. e.g.:

Quote
ADSL2+ Speeds:
Optimal ADSL2+ speeds require compatible ADSL2+ modem and filters. Around 70% of TPG ADSL2+ customers can achieve speeds greater than 10Mbps. Actual speeds will vary due to many factors including distance from the local telephone exchange, the quality of the customer's copper phone line, cabling and equipment.

While technically partially true, it's obvious that they're trying to mislead people. i.e. ADSL is asynchronous, and down/up differ, so stating a speed of 10 Mbps implies both up and down, however, the reality is very different. Conclusion: they're misleading intentionally because nobody in the industry is that stupid as to confuse ADSL for (synchronous) DSL. When you call them for support, they'll confess that the expected up speed is 1 Mbps. I really don't appreciate having to dig that far to get basic information. Sad

It would be one thing to be upfront and honest, but that just ticks me off. Like just how hard is it to be honest?

Anyways, that's better than I was seeing before, so I'm much happier with that. And still very jealous of a few people in here~! cheesy




The way I have it worked out, is that if a company offers you a 20MB connection, this means, if you CONNECT at that 20mb speed, you will actually DOWNLOAD at 10% of that speed, and upload at 10% of your DOWNLOAD speed.

Not sure if thats the exact, but certainly seems true for my line:

When it works properly, I get...

100mb/s connection
  - 10MB/s Max DOWN Speed
  - 1MB/s UP Speed

Again...this is depending on a few factors like where I am downloading/uploading from and if my internet is behaving in an optimal state, and how many times I have kicked the router that day.

Torrents will obviously download at a much much higher rate than HTTP downloads and I can't actually figure out the Down/Up ratio for them as its different for literally every single one.

...Might seem fast, but I pay for 2x that lol Sad
I would pay double what I'm paying now for that! I think that I'd need to pay around $400 a month to get even remotely close to that. (From the last time I looked...)

Works out here (For the 100meg fiber optic connection) + TV (Minus Sports and Movies) and Phoneline (With unlimited weekend calls to landlines, and free calls all day every day to mobiles on the same ISP network) at around £40/month (GBP) or something.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3I24bSteJpw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3I24bSteJpw</a>

Introducing Translate for Animals (beta): Bridging the gap between animals and humans



Making the world’s information universally accessible is a key goal for Google. Language is one of our biggest challenges so we have targeted our efforts on removing language barriers between the species. We are excited to introduce Translate for Animals, an Android application which we hope will allow us to better understand our animal friends. We’ve always been a pet-friendly company at Google, and we hope that Translate for Animals encourages greater interaction and understanding between animal and human.

Translate for Animals is an application for Android phones that recognises and transcribes words and phrases that are common to a species, like cats for example. To develop Translate for Animals, we worked closely with many of the world’s top language synthesis teams, and with leaders in the field of animal cognitive linguistics, including senior fellows at the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

Take a tour of Translate for Animals
Visit Android Market – more apps for your mobile

To remove Translate for Animals, go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Animal Translate and select “Uninstall”.

...Wtf...Did I fall asleep and miss an entire century...is this some type of Google Humor that I really am not getting?...wtf...

I don't have an android, so I cant actually download this and see if:

A> The App is actually a real App
B> WTF it thinks my dog's are saying.

Even if the App is real (IE, you can download it), and it does "Translate"...All its really going to be doing is collecting random sound bytes from a possibly massive list, at complete random...then giving you one to listen to...

Anybody care to explain this to me?!

Just downloaded and ran this.  Works VERY well indeed.  Was actually shocked at how many lines of code my small utility actually has (Even with all the options like blank lines, and designer unchecked).

Out of curiosity...How many lines does your line counter have? tongue

There are still a LOT more to come.  I'm going to release a minimum of one per week, but that figure could go as high as 5!  It all depends how bored I get lmao!  Cool

Baby Daughter (BD) bought a Jawbone - don't know which one - for her [shudder  undecided] iPhone.

Now she cannot locate it  Cry.

Anyone know of a means to track/trace a bluetooth ear piece?  Kinda like unto calling a lost cell phone?  (Google's been no help.)  She'd really like to locate it  tongue.

If its turned on and 'Visible' simply keep using your bluetooth phones to 'scan' for it...


If its turned off, I fear your eyes are your only option tongue

Only thing I can think of, is to perhaps backup all the partitions data onto another drive, then format the partitions using XP.  Might work, might not, worth a shot though.
