Hey hey.....

My superfast bandwidth for some reason didn't help me out in the least when C-D went down the other night.....

Too many people are wrapped around the axle with numbers.....

I get 3 pixapoodles/s on my downloads.....

~sheesh~

As long as pages load in an acceptable manner and D/L's don't take too long I really couldn't give a crap less about speeds....

This reminds me of a few decades ago where people were so proud of their stereo's frequency range.. -or- how many megapixels their camera has....

As long as my download of a CD image is faster than me having a smoke I don't GAS......

No one here is really debating differences in bandwidth. If you read the thread, you'll realize that almost all the posts are just of their transfer rate.

In a camera, megapixels can be very important depending on circumstances. Discounting pixel count across the board is dumb.

Similarly, bandwidth can be incredibly important. Not everything is about page load times. Downloading/uploading is a big deal. If a 10 megabyte file takes a minute to download/upload, that can be a big issue for many. Thus, discounting transfer rate across the board is dumb.

You didn't ruffle any feathers. I was just pointing out that your post overlooks simple concepts. Nevertheless, your rant was not inline with the purpose of this thread.

If you read my post properly, you'll see that I never called yours dumb.

Network is slow, not surprising being a Monday morning. Should see slightly faster results in the evening.
