WOW! I just downloaded the sound patch from www.colony7.net and I downloaded 109kb in 5 seconds!

It went 10kbps, 30kbps, 33kbps, 22kbps, 10kbps! Either an incredibly fast server or most of britain on 56k modems suddenly went offline.

I downloaded it again, and again, and again, and again, and it got a fastest speed of 36kbps! That's amazing. If it always did that, it would be a lot better than 5kbps.

EDIT: Now fastest of 38kbps.

I think Vanhal is punishing high speed users by making them wait to post. I can post a reply to a message, and then have a reply to another message ready to post, but have to wait because there is a certain amount of time that must be waited between postings.

Hey, that's the same for everyone. When I come back after an evening of not posting, I have about 15 windows with new posts in them and want to reply to about 5, so i have to wait a minute between each reply even though they're all ready.

Not anymore, they're introducing DSL into Ireland but it's really expensive Sad

But there is all sorts of montly fees and hidden expenses that they don't talk about on the ads.

Plus you'll need to get a new line!

:-( :-( Why is ireland always so far behind the rest of the world.

Heres a funny fact.
An irishman invented the submerine but the irish goverment has never owned a submerine and are one of the only goverments in the world that have never owned a submerine. LOL! LOL! Weird.

The submarine was invented by a man named Drebbel, in the 17th century. Look here:

They only found out recently that Drebbel invented it. When your school book was printed, they hadn't found Drebbel's notes.

That is not true.

This one is true:
The toilet was not invented by the French, but by the Chinese.
