First, I wanna thank you all these tweaks are GREAT!

How about setting up a speed test on this site?
It is really hard to know the real speed from the MSN Bandwith test page, it fluctuates too much.

Thanks for the positive comments and the suggestion.

There are a couple of reasons there is no speed test on this site...yet

First of all, such a test is very subjective - the closer you are to the server, the better results you are going to get, time of day makes a difference, as well as other similar factors.

The second one is that for such a test to be comparatively reliable, we have to provide a large file, which creates bandwidth issues. If someone has an idea for creating comaratively stable test with a small test file, we'd be happy to work on it.
