Monkey in charge

Jesus Christ on a Stick

After despairing of getting a reasonable download speed for the Quake 4 demo from anywhere, I remembered that Telewest have an FTP site they run themselves - and because it's on their own internal network the speeds tend to be good.

I'm currently getting 1073 kilobytes per second off of it.

That's an 8MB download speed.

See - there is a reason to have 10MB broadband - I can download huge files in almost no time.

Funny, I remember when 10MB was the speed of the office LAN.  Now it's the speed of my internet connection...
