I'll know this week if the RetroPie cloning is successful. I have a prototype working with everything from Atari to N64/PSX/Dreamcast. 100+ PSX games, 50ish N64, 15 Dreamcast, and hundreds or thousands of the older systems. I had all the parts to make the extras as Christmas gifts, unfortunately when I went to clone the micro SD card over for the other systems the extra cards I got on Amazon were off brand and kept corrupting during the process. Had to reorder name brand stuff, should be delivered in a few days. Fingers crossed!
Hey brother, feel free to jump back in anytime. I don't like, or dislike doing them lol. I do like having one there though. I'm just happy to have the SEC back. This year was sucking the first 3 weeks aside from the ND games without the other P5s.
I can dig it. I really liked Keys coming out of HS and it seems like now is his time. He's one reason that I haven't had much concerns about the WR's coming into this year or with the injuries. Always thought he'd eventually be a big part of this offense. I also like the comparison to Ginyard who was insanely productive at UC.
Thanks for the recommendation! Esselmont's writing style initially put me off, so I never really got into any of his stuff. Glad to hear he's improved. I'll keep an eye out for Dancer's Lament and Deadhouse Landing.
In my experience Netflix is quite a network hog, much more so than online gaming for sure. That's a lot of streaming video there. Hopefully you should be fine now though. I run roughly a 20 mbs connection through my standard Time Warner service and I can typically stream video and play online but I don't do it very often. I guess a good question would be what was her viewing like on the 5mbs service? Did she ever get issues with buffering or slow downs?
Something you may wanna do is run a quick test on speedtest.net before you change ISPs, then run it again after the new connection is hooked up and see how it really compares. It's always nice to see if the company is delivering what you're paying for, even if they're unable to provide a certain speed at all times during the day.
Let me know if that answers the question.
For basic internet surfing, no media, you won't notice a big change probably. You'll see the biggest gains in videos streaming faster and file downloads. You probably won't see a whole lot of difference in your online gaming I would think, but I don't know how much you play online outside of NCAA which isn't terribly taxing from a network standpoint if I recall. Game/System updates will likely be noticeably faster.
As with all things network related, distance still plays a factor (Downloads from a server in a neighboring state will be faster than from the west coast) and you're likely not going to get 20mbs at all times (That's probably the best case speed). There's also the fact that you may be sharing your bandwidth with more or less users in your area depending on the ISP you're switching to and how many of your neighbors are also using that ISP (If it's cable based). That won't be a big deal most of the time, but during peak hours you'll likely see the slowest speeds.
