    SG is turning 18 :) ... and some updates

    The speedguide.net domain was originally purchased on 5/5/1999, exactly 18 years ago!

    It's been a wild ride, and we're still here (well at least some of us )



    The SG speed test has been completely revamped over the past couple of weeks, it is now HTML5, supports all modern browsers, and uses multiple streams/threads to better test download/upload/ping/jitter!

    https://www.speedguide.net/speedtest/



    By the way, if anyone has spare change, er. bandwidth on a dedicated server somewhere, we can use a few extra mirrors, the change to the new speed test last night rendered many of the old speed test mirrors obsolete. Here is some info on hosting a mirror: https://www.speedguide.net/speedtest/add_mirror.php

The tendency of most is to adopt a view that is so ambiguous that it will include everything and so popular that it will include everyone." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Despite being banned 13 times. Thanks Ken.
    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    Life and other forums got in the way. I got married two months ago and traveled for a month. All in all, life has been great!

    How are things with you?

    Congrats on the ball and chain! (MadDoc can elaborate if you insist, but I'd be scared)

    I am fine, my two daughters are growing fast... I tried that too (growing up) for a while... hated every minute of it so I gave it up

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    Wow, 18 again huh? oh, sorry, I thought it was ME

    I am still around but not much these days. It's a pity that so many are not here anymore, for one reason or another.
    Still like to poke my head in here occasionally to see how it is all going.
