i got over 3500 kbps download speed and 600kbps upload speed on speedtest.net, and that's with an italian server (speedtest don't have any servers in southern france :(). how much can you get?

i guess it also depends on the time you're using the internet. if i use it when i stay up late it's significantly faster.

I hardly ever stay past midnight in my time (+/-0 GMT) so I never get really fast connections. When I think about it since I live right near London there is a lot of people so the bandwidth would be shared between a few people.

Kirk's just being a douchebag. Ignore him.

However. Considering that two of the mods of this forum are pissed (including me), and one is Luis who's barely managing to control this group of pyschos who we're calling the Regs meet, this thing's being locked until Sunday.

Please tune into the webcam. We're being amusing.

KSd: Biggest penis?

Kirk: *points to your post* yeah? yeah?

KSd: We're all on a sofa at the moment, joint modding everyone in General. The ban messages are getting pretty fucking epic. There's me, Kirk, and BBM here on the forum, and we're letting everyone else write sentances to ban people with.

Also, Kirk is.

I've heard CS4 is in production, in fact I've seen a few tests of it. Check out the beta on adobe labs. Search youtube for conventions and the net for examples of it. They're planning for a bone system (Inverse Kinematics) and native 3D.

Yeah, things got kinda silly on Friday. Although locking the lounge was probably a good idea anyway =P

Heh, yeah someone really should unban delta. Although it's kinda his own fault for not turning up ;)

Pissed means drunk

Password protecting the lounge is a bad idea and would require too much scripting.

how about a request, you request if you want to be in it and then you get access, if not you have to ask permission and we vote

Quiet about that, us two might not be let in. Also this lounge isn't just for forum regs but long time users of the flash program. That and the amount of programming would be very high.

Since it's part of a forum the lounge bases it on how much posts you have and not the more important things like the quality of your posts. I'm not using you as an example, your posts are great tand there is a lot of them, say if a user with over 8000 posts posted they would be accepted without anyone seeing their posts while a user with about 500 probably wouldn't be accepted even if their posts are all helpful and in-depth.

yea so the lounge is post based? i wasnt even here for the redesign that i have heard a lot about but most of my posts go to the collabs and helping people out, i dont really post new threads unless i fell like a bit of a change.

I think respect comes with helping people out and post count but since looking at peoples posts can take too long people just judge from post count which can be found instantly, a respect system might be a good idea for that kind of thing but would also have stat whores trying to help out. At the same time proxies could be used to spam vote a user down or up.

a respect system can be easily taken advantage of, it would hve restrictions, like you can only vote the person up ad down when they have replied to your thread and you can only post a thread if you and a positive respect, and you need 100 respect for the reg lounge, or maybe it could be linked to your level?

YAY THE LOUNGE IS BACK UP!

I agree here... sorta... If i have to enter a password every time I visit the reg lounge that'd be nice ^_^ unless were talking having admins add a code to our login so that if people visit the reg lounge and they're noobs it says "you don't have admission to be here, request access?" mayhaps?

Either way.. I made a new journal, check it out if anybody's interested.
