    Ok, I know the title is corny, but let's move on.

    Just for fun, I want to have a little (prizeless) game.

    Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and get an image of your results and post them. We'll see who can go the lowest and who goes the highest! :D

    My own tests:
    My PC:
    [​IMG]
    Sister's PC:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Nice to see my download speed is significantly faster than my sister's. I actually only get 4mb/s download speeds. (still very good!)

    Trying to drop below 300 upload.


    Edit: try playing around with different locations to see how low you can get your speed and high you can get your ping! :D

    Keep updating ONE post with results until August 20th. Then all of them will be read through and the winners (of nothing) will be announced! :D Having it all organized into less posts makes it easier on everybody! (I'm sure the staff appreciates it, too)

    Download Highest : First: farlex85 28,316 KB/S
    Second: Wolf2009 - 19,585 KB/S August 15 2008

    Download lowest : mrw1986 2,568 KB/S August 15 2008

    Upload Highest :
    Upload lowest: Urbklr 175 KB/S August 15 2008

    Highest Ping :
    Lowest Ping :

    Through all the rushing around I accidentally thanked SneekyPeet.

    GOALS:
    Highest/Lowest PING
    Highest/Lowest Download Speed
    Highest/Lowest Upload Speed
    Longest/Shortest Distance

    Plenty of room to win!

    I'm trying to keep up! O.O';

    I keep having to delete and edit and crap. I think I'll make a deadline for the main 'contest' part.

    Yeah, could have been a server thing, my internet slows too. I'm amazed how fast it says it is really, cause my experience hasn't led me to believe it's that fast. :ohwell:
