Where is this tent?

Inside the server room of the ISP? =P

I wish I could get that, I was jumping for joy over my 14 up and 9 down...

Wow, my 5Mb download and .5Mb upload just can't compete with that. Let alone my ping of around 50ms. I wish I could play Halo on that connection.

That's almost as fast as you drive ;)

I just ran a speedtest. And because I suck at copying that kind of picture:

Download: 18.78 Mb/s
Upload: 8.25 Mb/s
Ping: 20
Server Distance: Less Than 50 Miles
Comcast

I love america... >.<

This camp site has a 10 Gigabit connection to the Internet :) of which currently only about 5% is being used.

My tent is less than 100 meters away from the camp site's data center and just 5 meters away from the nearest access switch. The fact that my laptop is connected to a 100 Mbit port instead of Gigabit is mostly limiting that speedtest...

You must be attending Hacking At Random 2009 at de Paasheuvel near Vierhouten. Am I right or am I right?

Or he is at campzone ow bartjan you gamer! http://campzone.nl/

campzone is famous for their crappy Internet (a few DSL lines, that's all) and even that often gets disrupted by boats getting stuck in the cable...

No, it indeed is HAR2009 where I'm at right now.

I hate the crappy wireless internet I have at the moment. But it's better than nothing, I suppose :)
