11. I'm supposed to have 150/20 and when I run tests I get anywhere between 90 and 160 down and 10 and 25 up, but that's certainly not what I'm experiencing streaming, as a single episode of anything takes longer to download from any streaming service than the episode actually has for run-time.

My service does come in over coax, though, and the pipe is shared with their cable service for at least my entire building, if not my complex.

    80/20 is the best I can get in my area at the moment. It costs about 50% more than what I'm paying now though so it's not really worth it, maybe if I ever start playing games online regularly (doubt).

    13. Even then, 80/20 should be adequate for gaming.

    14.

    I played games for years with less than 7 mbps/512 kbps without any problems, except when I used to get ping spikes of 2000+ ms. It's crazy to think that in a week I'll be upgrading from 100/20 mbps to 200/20 mbps.

      Snowy as fook outside today, and we're forecast quite a bit more over the next week. My legs already ache.

      It's currently -5°C outside but no snow for now which is good in a way.

        With wind chill we're down to about -10°C in the city tonight. Met office have put out an amber snow warning from midnight to 10am tomorrow.

        Worst of that snow predicted for the hour I walk to work, Should be fun.

        18. Have fun with that. I got lucky with our last couple storms and was able to stay in during them.

          This guy made the most of it. https://twitter.com/WillieSteil/status/968776956652216321

          Norfolk is pretty much the flattest county in England btw, that's why he isn't on a bigger hill.

          20. Kinda hard to tell that's a hill at first from the vid. Definitely a way to make the most of it. Not the way I would personally make the most of it, but I've got a lifetime of dealing with snow 4-ish months a year behind me and ahead of me.

            Had some nice walks in it but it's too much now, I don't have clothes and shoes for this sort of weather. Enjoying it by putting the heating on full blast and drinking a glass of vodka (it has come in from Russia afterall).

            SEGA released a demo version of Yakuza 6 which let people access the whole game. Cool strategy.

            22. Clothing for that sort of weather is expensive anyway if you only use it like 2 times a year.

            Is it one of those limited number of boot-up demos like Nintendo employs on the 3DS?

              Nah, it was a straight up goof from SEGA. It was supposed to let you play chapter 1 and then have an unlimited amount of time walking around the city playing minigmes ect but yeah, people got the entire game. It was one of those demos where progress/achievements were supposed to transfer over to the full game.

              The fact that the game is pretty much ready to go now makes it weird that they pushed the release date back a month. I assumed there was just more to translate than they expected.

              Anyway, I can't wait to play 6. They've managed to make it so that it won't have loading screens and they've finally gotten around to letting us drip pins on the map. Life changing.

              Sheesh I come back from the home country and my SO tells me PC went to hell in a handbasket.

              Well it's been almost a decade since I joined PC and I have to say it certainly shaped who I am to this day. It's the place where I met my BF, made a lot of memories and certainly kept me sane during trying times in my personal life. I do feel bad for becoming inactive over the past year and a half, but alas real life called and insane work hours limited my free time. I'll still be here to see y'all but I'm still available on other platforms if you look into it :P

                Don't feel bad about going inactive, life is more important (maybe).

                Oh hey, I'm approaching my 2 year anniversary. Time sure flies when you're drunk and miserable.

                26. Life is more important. Some of us just don't work 50+ hour weeks while certain others have been.

                  I've not picked up much overtime in the last few months so I've just been doing 40 hour weeks. I've been trying to post on PC but the 3 places I like are dead now.

                  There are like 15 posts a month on the anime forum and the football thread hasn't been posted in since before Christmas.

                  On the bright side posting less means I haven't been banned in ages.

                  1. Should I have reset? Maybe, but I'll count and let's see what happens.

                  2.

                  May this new era be better than the last one of whatever cheesy saying there is to fit this.
