Ill check for ya before I go to work in the morning from one of those speed sites.. I think I get around 25mb/s for the number that pops up first then 10mb/s for the second. But I only ever see 2mb/s on torrenting.. that's just a flat guess. Going to bed now those ill let you no for sure in the morning

Sounds good, seems like you are not getting what you could get.

I am totally not getting what I could get!!

Ping 5ms
Download Speeds 9.51 mb/s
Upload Speeds 5.25 mb/s

Im going to have to call them on the way to work I am paying for closer to 50 mb/s!

Edit: So I called them up and they said 9mb/s was pretty slow and that I should troubleshoot when I retrun home from work. They said you only see up to 50 mb/s if you have boost plus, which is $5 more than what I pay. With normal boost I should be seeing up to 30mb/s, which I used to see 20-25mb/s. I dont know why its so crapy now. But torrenting it totally different since its peer to peer.

Its still faster than what I really need, but I want to make sure I am getting what I pay for.

Edit 2: Upon getting home and testing my internet I am reporting speeds of 32mb/s download and 5 upload. Maybe they turned it back ona fter I complained

BTW that totally derailed the thread..

I have to also support the 'do not use Dreamweaver' to learn how to do web pages for the reasons already stated in this thread. I am interning as a web designer for Camgen LTD (camgen.com), and they want us to do our web page design in a text editor and not use any applications. Web design applications have their place, but if you do not understand the basic concepts that you learn when hard coding in a text editor, you will be lost if you have to fix code from a web design application.

Also, one of my professors who is a professional in this field, when she was teaching us the class in web design using Dreamweaver, she taught us how to hard code using the web standards and also said that applications like Dreamweaver can produce some bad code and does teach bad habits. So far, everything I have learned since has shown me she is correct. I've seen people who have always relied on applications to do the work crash and burn because they really did not understand how to actually write the code nor how the code actually works.

I also recommend using WC3school to learn about web design. Something that will help you, is when you are designing a web site, you need to know who your target audience is. How you design your website depends on many things. For example, if your target audience is likely to be higher tech users, then they would likely have browsers that are capable of viewing HTML5 and CSS3 (newest versions, but not yet standard). However, if your target audience is going to be the average home user, the type that buys a computer then never updates it, then using the latest (HTML5 and CS3) is not going to work on their older browsers so what they actually will see, may not look like you intended.

Another tip, learn CSS. You can do so much with CSS it's almost scary. www.csszengarden.com is a great website that shows how you can change the entire look of a website just by changing the CSS.

Anyway, I think you will do yourself much more justice learning to hard code in a text editor (I use the free text editor called Crimson Editor myself). It really is not that hard to learn it that way either. Good luck and have fun!
