Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Landlord Internet shenanigans or just crappy service?
So the internet connection at my new apartment is spotty. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes it's completely dead until I toggle my wifi card on and off, sometimes even toggling my wifi doesn't help it come back, and sometimes it's just really slow (like it loads some pages slower than dial-up, or loads pages halfway, or loads some pages like Google News but doesn't load the forums at the same time).
What I'm trying to get is a free utility that will monitor my internet connection and speed, and let me have a graphical representation of it so I can point to the line and say "The connection cut out at this time, and at this time, at this time it was slow, etc. etc." I know about the online internet speed tests, but they don't really help me because the only time they're usable is when my connection is working normally; when it's not, I usually can't even get to the test site.
Also I'm on a Mac. Anyone know of something like this? Thanks.
