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!
So, it's President's Day today, and around 2-3, I start playing Dawn of War 2, Retribution, and my ping and everyone else's is 2000-3000, I go to Day of Defeat: Source and check, latency in the thousands. Unless someone in my neighborhood has been screwing around with the land lines, or the workers that came today to paint a side of my house tripped over some wire, I need to figure out how to fix this. For months it feels like the internet has been getting tiny increments slower, like in Youtube where I can't put a video over 480p anymore without massive amounts of buffering. I have 300kb/ps, been trying to get higher, my modem is 5 years old, I think, we might have replaced it a year or two back. I just haven't had this problem before.
Another thing, for some reason my network I see on Network and Sharing center has changed from Linksys345 or whatever, to Network 2.
