  1. yeah, just got 1mb cable today, WOOHOOOO, i need some places to test it.

    imagine PORN at 30x faster than dial-up:D ;) ;)

    I need ideas on where to test this fast baby!!:confused:
     
  2. lol. goto downloads.com or microsoft.com and download those big files out there. the servers should have fast connection so you can max out your dl speed.
