How Fast Is Comcast Blast? REALLY Fast.

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on June 21st, 2008 in Beer Planet

So the Comcast installer just left, and I'm sitting here in my new house, on the floor, with no furniture, testing how fast the internet actually is (because who really cares about other stuff?). Comcast Blast is supposed to be 16mbps down and 1mbps up (2 if you're extremely lucky). I'm still collecting my jaw all over the floor though, because these are the speed test results:

That's a 3 mbit per second upload = 375 KB/s. Wow, Comcast, just wow. I know there are many people having complaints about service but after being a customer for 8 years, I really am happy with everything. Blows the puny DSL away….


Navicat For MySQL Bugs Filed

Update: Looks like both of these have been fixed in 8.0.26.

Navicat For MySQL is a GUI for MySQL developers. I've tried a few tools before but somehow got attached to Navicat due to a few nice features that I'm not going to go into right now. Navicat suffers from a couple of annoying bugs and random crashes. I don't know if I can help fix the random ones but if I can at least file the ones I can reproduce, everyone wins. I have the latest as of today version 8.0.23.
