That's the greatest way yet! biggrin.gif

Alright, top three ways to mow your lawn:
1. Use a machete! ph34r.gif (Scott Gentzen's neighbor)
2. Stare it down! cool.gif (brainlesswonder)
3. Self-operating lawn mower (me! biggrin.gif )

And our honorable mention in the "how to mow your lawn" category goes to... Not having one! tongue.gif (Kris)


(I just realised that this might just be just a tiny bit off-topic... let's fix that: guitar. Now it's on-topic! biggrin.gif )

This is actually a feature that will appear in the future. It's in the planning stage right now, but it's coming.



And regarding this thread in general, there's a related (although somewhat technical at the end) thread in the off-topic forum for those who are interested:

Yes, I've noticed that as well. We will get access to the server on the 25th I belive, so hopefully it can be up and running some seven to nine days or so from now. I'll PM you when testing if I need you to test it out for me from your location smile.gif



*Edit a few minutes later:*

I checked it now, and it was the 22nd! I'm in Stockholm doing some other work until wednesday this week however, but when I'm back on thursday I'll be right at it! With some luck, it might be up by friday!

One more thing:

If you like to test the download speed from the new server, try this out:
http://85.17.128.2/10mb.bin

It's a 10MB file located in the same data center. The data center is in the netherlands, and I get the highest possible speed using my swedish Telia ADSL line. Same for Kris with his fiber line and also very good for a few others who have tried it out.

It would be interesting to hear if it seems to be good speed for you, and also for anyone else (including non-europeans!).

I'm in the USA on the East Coast and I got > 500KByte/sec - pretty reasonable I'd say smile.gif

I Have 30Mbit cable, so that speed reflects the whole journey and is not limited at my end.

Hello Again! smile.gif
My average speed was 100kbps, so not as good as Andrews laugh.gif My line is a true 2 Meg line which is generally very quick. I will be more than happy to help test the new server!

I only get around 100Kb/s on that file. I'm using 8MB connection, and I have seen other downloads go up to around 700KB/s. (I'm in the UK)

I'll be willing to test the new UK server too if you need more testers smile.gif (since I finish school on Friday biggrin.gif )


**edit** I also get fairly slow video loading speeds

Great, I got 800 kB/s on that, I'm looking forward to the 22'nd or when it was. biggrin.gif

Those of you who aren't getting more than 100 kbytes/sec - what speed do you get when downloading this video from the current gmc server?

While not as fast as I would have hoped, 100KB/s should still be enough to play the videos without any problems smile.gif

(you do mean KB - KiloByte - not Kb - Kilobit, right?)

Agreed - I was occasionally down to ~80 kbytes/sec on our previous US GMC server- and it still allowed for good video streaming.

Matt: The difference will be huge for you when we get the UK server going! smile.gif

Things are happening! biggrin.gif

The files from this server are currently being copied to the new european server. When this is done, we will do some tests and hopefully we'll be able to open the new server up for euopean users some time tomorrow!

Well you could be getting slow download speeds because you could have tons of crap on your computer. For example if you have tons of folders on your desktop that arent short cuts they are real folders with items in them like 18.1 mbs I have of music and that slow my computer way down. Or if you haven't cleaned your computer of spyware, viriuses and what not that will GREATLY effect your computer. My mother broad broke because i didn't take well enough care of my computer until it was too late. So I would fix your computer of spyware viriuses go to Start>Run>msnconfig press Enter and check all the crap you have running and you can shut some of it down on the start up.

So clean your computer
Clean up the desktop
change what you have on start up (requires basic computer knowledge)

After all of that and your computer is still going very slow then it is your connect.

biggrin.gif

If you are too lazy to deal with the desktop just get more RAM lol.
