    Ever wonder about the speed performance of your puter? Well, here is a site where you can check your computer's internet speed. I did & got a few UGH's and I am supposedly on high speed. :rolleyes:

    Well at least I understand the one you suggested Detox, a bit better. I like things plain & simple. :)

    Hi Peaches! Here's my personal favorite:
    http://www.numion.com/YourSpeed/

    I haven't got broadband yet and some of those images from the, errr, you know which thread, took FOREVER to download. Gonna check your link out even though I'm still on antiquated dial-up. Thanks.

    Hey Acadia.

    Thanks for posting that link.
    I like that test better than McAfee's speed test.
    I bookmarked it. ;)

    Your welcome. That site received some fairly good press some time ago but I forget where. Take care.

    Jeeeeeeeeez!

    The measurement on Acadia's link isn't half bad, but the thing flashing about me winning a DVD player nearly sent me into convulsions!!

    Yikes, you're right, that is pretty obnoxious. :eek: That wasn't there the last time I used that site.
