Got a new computer. I thought I had noticed that web pages were loading faster.

Before (4/2/07):

Actually, 10:57AM EDT

After (4/13/07):

Actually 7:07AM EDT

Frederick, MD is the server closest to me. Other, more distant, servers have been slower, but they've all been over 10,000 kbps. Can a new computer really make that much difference???????

FYI: The 4th quarter of last year, I was averaging around 8000 kbps. For some reason, toward the end of January this year, my speed dropped precipitously as reflected by the "Before" reading above. Maybe my ISP was just having a hiccup, or something.

Thanks for the link - that's a really cool way to test a PC. I'm subscribing to a 3M/1M DSL for my business and found that my results are actually closer to 4.3/0.5, but I'll take it because it means the Axiom boards download faster!

It's a good thing you're a Red Wings fan. Loved game 1. Game 2 on Sunday.
