I couldn't believe my eyes.
ive only seen up to like 300-400 at school with a T3.
Holy shit, I get excited when I hit 240 kb/sec
I see 200-250 all day at my house, I see 3-400 at my office. That's rediculous.
ive gotten that before! it eventually dropped and sustained around 1200kbs (from mid 2000kbs)and then finished(this was during a fresh windows reinstall). i had the pic but i dont know where it is now(system restore). my regular dl speeds are around 400-600 normal. Road Runner connection(only two people including me have cable internet).
ok i just realized my pic that i had is on a fried HD; ill take another pic if it happens again.
here's where my connection usually holds:
btw; which isp do you have?
WooWooo Fedora Core 4 Good stuff.
Does Fedora come in DVD iso form?
Sure does, not all mirrors have it though...
Damn boy, looks like I'ma be downloadin' tonight!
Run into any issues let me know
i see 550-850 all the time on my comcast cable.
B. this was from my comcast cable as well, from some sourceforge site, that was a sustained transfer. I cleard my cache etc. and tried it again, I was impressed.
and no it wasn't fedora it was felyx and I am using win xp pro
comcast is the shit. too bad im in an overly crowded area and it kills speeds.
At 3-4 AM on a weekday I can DL shit at 600 or so
I was refering to K2e2vins post
You'll convert soon
I've tried various flavors of linux, including fedora, they are easy to install ,get up and running etc. the only issue I have is the only cad package I know of that is ported to linux is PRO/E which is $$$$$$$ and I need cad package
and when you d/l and install some tpe of program cd burning etc. it installs etc and makes directories atc... but doesn't make liek a similar shortcut from teh desktop or some kind of menu. Don't know if that is explained clear enough.
Also unless I'm using an LVM or Raid, I can't really set up multiple drives like C: D: E: in windows. well unless I just haven't figured out how to yet.
if it did these things seemlessly I'd be using linux today as a primary system.
So for the time being I'm installing a novell netware server here at home since I've been using it for 10 years now and it works great as a server. it even runs X
fastest ive seen is 200kbps and thats for a fraction of a second. usually its 160-170. its normal right, for a 1.5mb/s dl DSL. its the cheapest, around 26 per month, but now its like 15 and im trying ot get into the deal.
Right click on desktop > create new > link to application
As far as the AutoCad there's a few replacment, though spending time getting used to them could be more a reason not to switch. I still uses PS over GIMP unless it's a quick resize, anything more and it's PS. CAD + Linux programs.
For the drives, depends on if they are NTFS or another files system. I have both my internals and my extrenal mounted and recognized, my Windows and external are both NTFS too, I had to add read only support, and if I felt like messing with it, I could use Captiva and have read/write for NTFS. It autodectected my thumb/CD/DVD only probelm I really had was my camera, but that's becasue I set it to autodect the wrong mode
The only other gripe I have is networking with windows systems I tried fedora core 4 w/ samba server running. everything work, I could see each computer on the network browse files , copy a file from a windows machine to the linux box.
I could copy a file from the linux machine back to the windows box. but when I tried to play an mp3 stored on the linux box via winamp on the winows machine no dice.
