well I havent noticed much with this new one but with the old one I usually have around 60kb/sec but with cablenut once changed the registry the download was around 300-500kb/sec, depending from time to time.

I'm assuming you're still using Windows 98 for whatever reason then in that case. Windows 98 was designed with dial-up networking in mind, and is simply not optimized for modern broadband connections. You're still not getting a "boost" out of it, you're merely now enjoying speeds that are somewhere near what (sane) people with Windows XP or any newer NT-based OSes have enjoyed with your service for years, though I doubt it's as good.

Also, 300-500 kB/sec is nowhere near the speed you should be getting with a 10 megabit connection, you should be around ~1200 kB/sec.

Oh, and despite what a few brilliant people think, we don't ban people because we don't get along with them

I believe we've had a mutual hatred (with flaming from both sides included) going on for nearly half a year. You've only now been banned, after we got tired of your weekly "lol lets try to get tas pissed off so he bans me and then i can go on gwd and bitch about it 8)" sessions. Cry me a river and host your own fu**ing server. sage4dramafag

Chances are you'll just crash yourselves before that happens. :(
I don't think you understand how hard dedicated servers are to crash, but in the event you actually did crash it... only takes five seconds to restart it and another thirty to ban your subnet. Also, "rosamerde"... :roll:

Actually, its impossible. All Raving would do is screw up the game for people not involved in our little angstfest, much like Dragonheart tried to do (but failed miserably both due to his own stupidity and the fact that he couldn't stay unbanned long enough to get much done most of the time).

300-500 is what I get when I had 0,5Mbit/sec didnt matter what OS I was using

For the 10 mbit connection I get above 1,5mb download..so you can say a tripple jump in download from 0,5 to 10.

Yeah.

A couple days ago, he came in pretending to be some little kid who was new to giants. I knew who he was, so I mentioned that he was still banned, but left it at that. If he wants to dink around thats good, but I'm still going to keep tabs on him and make sure hes banned.

To be honest though, even doing that is probably too kind. From what I understand, a fair deal of people don't like him at all anymore (I wonder why...) and would probably want to know what name he is using so they can remove him from their games.
