Er, uh … you’re welcome! Though my dates don’t seem to be nearly as big a problem as your ability to read threads .

I just recently purchased a DH shared plan, and was wondering what type of upload speeds most people were seeing? …[/quote]

Re: Upload speeds [re: Jaguar4192]
Uploads, like downloads, are sensitive to protocol and latency… At any rate, I get around 100 KB/sec (that’s kilobytes, not kilobits!) at around 100 ms latency. My uplink is capped at 5 mb at home and 100 mb from work.[/quote]
Hmmm … how do you get “over 12 hours” out of the time period between 10/31/07 07:17 PM and 10/31/07 07:46 PM? I’ve double-checked my arithmetic and I still see that time period coming out to be about 29 minutes. Or is lensman just “no one” in your view? I actually thought he gave you a pretty useful answer and am a little confused why you just disregard it without acknowledgment as though he hadn’t even bothered to answer.
If you take the time to read through messages on this board to get the feel of what is standard practice here, you’d see see how rarely anything is “bumped” at all - but, meh - whatever you feel is best. What I was adding to the thread was a “pointer” to the “new guy” about needless bumping (which is generally considered “rude” on all but “kiddie boardz”). Forcing your thread to the top of the “recent” queue is the classic “adding nothing to the thread” - my useless comment was no more useless than your useless bump.
I you are going to play “bumpity-bump”, at least no one here should have to read through your “bumps” - you didn’t even bother to modify the title to indicate it was a “bump”, so that it could be ignored by those who might still have nothing to contribute to your thread, but are trying to read new posts.
You can create a ticket anytime you want - DH staff is paid to put up with selfishness and rudeness - forum participants aren’t.
