Thanks for the suggestion about Transmit. I’ll check it out.
When I ran the Speakeasy test, it reported I had 691kpbs (86.4 KB/s) upload rate.
This upload rate test still leaves me thinking there’s some intermittent problem between me and dreamhost. My upload shows ‘stalled’ a lot of the time, then it races ahead, as if it were uploading at around 100 KB/s for a few seconds. Then, it stalls again.
This wouldn’t be so bad, except that sometimes the stall lasts long enough to break my pipe.
Save the Earth. It’s the only planet with chocolate!
