Still juggling a myriad of blargh to get my Usenet access going, but otherwise it’s up and running. Much to my surprise (and disgust) the anime fansub FTP site I go to still only crawls at modem speeds. I guess they’re too overloaded; everything else is running fine, except for the odd mouse cursor hiccup during heavy network activity… odd.
Of course, this is Comcast, which is usually only spoken of alongside one of George Carlin’s 7 dirty words… not that I have any choice for high speed access in this area, thanks to the monopolies. Anybody else have their cable modem service? How’s it perform for you? Is it true that after 1 gig of Usenet they cut you off?
ADDENDUM Paging Mandoric. Will Mandoric please e-mail me regarding my FTP password? Thanks. ^_^ (I don’t have any other contact info for him. n.n;;)
