If New Orleans is beat... -- Tuesday, August 30 2005

Your smile is fading a bit so I ration it
don't think about it
Here where the Mississippi quits where
its still got a bit of Minnesota in it

No one will give you a thing these days
they'd rather kill it or throw it away
you don't 'do' dark American streets so
if New Orleans is beat
if New Orleans is beat
if New Orleans is beat
if New Orleans is beat
if New Orleans is beat
where's that leave you and me?

The river takes takes takes and takes
it doesn't change and only changes
see it there in a picture with me
there's a caption beneath,
"New Orleans is beat"
and if New Orleans is beat
if New Orleans is beat
if New Orleans is beat
if New Orleans is beat
where's that leave you and me?
where's that leave you and me?
where's that leave you and me?

your smile is fading a bit so I ration it
try not to think about it.

My heart goes out to all the people of New Orleans and wherever hurricane Katrina has unleashed her wrath.

Peace.

What a diff!!! -- Monday, August 8 2005

What a difference a tweak makes..

So I have "Extreme High Speed" or so i'm supposed to have it.. cause I pay for it. Yet I go to my proposed mate's house and she gets double my download speeds. So I sit here thinking.. wtf is wrong with me.

So I call tech support "well we can send someone out to look at the line.. wanna take a day off work and we might show up" i'm like um no thanks.

So I do the google.. and see what comes up. I come across this site... which directs me to this site which has a cool little program called tcp optimizer. Now in the past I have used Dr. TCP/IP and it works great too.. this is just a new toy for me though. SO I give it a shot.

Toss my connection suggested speed of 5mbits up on the slider.. select my nic card.. and hit optomize and apply.. does some changes i'm like hmm okie dokie.

Now before I did this update... I did speed tests from megapath (dslreports.com) and from cnet.com.. both showed speeds of 1.1 to 1.5mbits.

After the fix.. i'm at 4.5mbits download from megapath. And cnet is showing 1.9mbits and 2.5mbits on a second attempt.

Both attemps obviously increase in speed.

The interweb seems to have a spring in it's step once again.

Now to try this out on WarCrack :P

Peace.
