* 205 KB/s = 3101
* 217 KB/s = 5272

Damn I've got a ways to go before i get that extra 12 kb/s

Wouldn't it be better to round off the numbers a bit more, it's kind of confusing as is.

Ok that's nice telling the speed at the download page. But, how come it doesn't match up to the list? Not that I'm complaining, it's higher for me smile.gif
You staffers should probably get uncapped speeds.

Ok now wait. I went to download that to test the speed and it was going at like 125 kb/s. And it's not my connection because i was downloading stuff last night at like 250.

I still had the posts count set to 25K overriding whatever your real one was for when I had the script make that list.

Process to determine your speed.
for($aaa=2;($aaa<$postcount&&$speedsteps<17);$aaa=round($aaa*1.7,0)) {
$speedsteps++;
}
$speed = 50 + ($speedsteps * 12);

I dont know, i just put something in. I noticed the weaknesses.
Ya, rly.

Oh yeah, that's the part where little red riding hood skips through the forest, how silly of me.

Ok so um, is there any reason it's going slower than it says it should? OR is it just that GCN doesn't like me.
