You figure in this day and age one could get consistent and fast internet.

Tests from yesterday:
10:16AM
Ping: 67ms
DL: 1.16Mbps
UP: 0.76Mbps

9:15PM
Ping: 466ms
DL: .12Mbps
UL: 0.07Mbps

9:16PM
Ping: 80ms
DL: 0.77Mbps
UL: 0.60Mbps

10:32PM
Ping: 150ms
DL: 1.1Mbps
UL: 0.76Mbps

It's been like this for the past couple months. Called Quest a couple of times, and naturally, there's nothing wrong and their remote test confirmed it.

Things I have done:
-Reset router and modem (Both hard and soft)
-Bitched
-Checked connections and plugs, replaced cables

And it still gives me this bullshit. The worst part is that Quest is the ONLY high-speed internet service provider out here and they offer ONE service, so they have no motivation to give a **** about any of us.

EDIT: Japanese people are creepy ^^

Your high speed internet is a shared line. Peak times between 6pm and 10pm will yield your slowest downloads because that is when everyone else in the neighborhood is on also. It is probably at its fastest at 4:30am, haha.

I don't think so - we haven't had this problem up until a month or so ago. Besides, I don't think that a shared line would go down to .10Mbps, that's just ridiculous.

I'm thinking it might be the line from our house's magic box to the other magic box. It was recently replaced. Right around the time it got slow too.

Yesterday I was on my way to the shop only to run into detour after detour due to flooded roads. The first one I hit by my bank was the worst. A half dozen cars were lost in the water (you can sorta see them in the picture).

Every route I took led me to another mess of traffic. Over by the Home depot they had us routed through the parking lots and out a small single side entrance. That was a 30 min ordeal. I hit another 2 detours after that and just said **** it and went back home.

Here's some pictures I took with my iphone, quality isn't the best.







From what I've read the rest of the state got hit pretty bad. http://www.ctpost.com/local/article/...ms-1045687.php

My F250 will be for sale soon. I'm buying a stock 2004 STI from a 65 y/o family friend. The trouble is, it's spent its life in Chicago as a winter car.

Northern dudes, should I expect rust issues?

Yes, road salt that is present for 5 months of the year really degrades the body panels and underside.

Most likely, but it really depends on how the original owners treated it. If they washed it regularly (even during cold seasons), or had any kind of rust protection, then it could be fine. But chances are it's not nearly as nice as you are thinking.

I love when people make funny rwhp claims. Case in point is a guy selling a MSM with a 2860/FMII kit and 460cc injectors making 318rwhp/287rwtq. Yeah..so you're making 350+hp at the crank on 460cc injectors? Yeah right.

As if visiting m.net wasn't irritating enough, they've added a floating meebo ad bar at the bottom. It can be minimized but not removed (not without bothering with some sort of adblocker browser extension).
