I tried out WoW about an hour ago (3:50pm) and noticed little lag. Still too early I am assuming.

i played again last afternoon/evening and it was still lag free. we might actually have a permanent fix on our hands...

You guys should just stop being so snerdly and start doing more productive things....like watching anime. :D

Hehe... "snerdly."

i don't know what happened but yesterday and today my game's been running so beautifully and smoothly. i love you, drew internet, i am prepared to betroth myself to you.

yea, despite the fact that no person who has knowledge of the changes being made has come forth and said "we found the problem and rectified it" everything seems to be functioning perfectly now. i can play my games nearly lag free, and everyone else seems to be having a much better experience as well. hooray!

We've made some changes today, so could you please casually try a few of the programs and protocols that you've been having trouble with? Specifically the ones that have worked better in academic areas than in dorms. Thanks-


The changes were made before the break.

And then you posted the very next post.

Also, I haven't gotten kicked off AIM in 5 days! I'm happy. :)

In the end I put it back into a similar configuration to how we had it earlier, but with some additional modifcations and adjustments which should hopefully make it work a little better all around. That is of course the hope anytime we make an adjustment to this device, it's just sometimes a bit unpredictable how it will turn out what with the chaotic nature of the internet and such. There are a great many ideas that seem wonderful until they are implemented.

So what I'm saying is, I know it must have been bumpy last night, with only http really working well. We didn't do that on purpose. We are actually trying to make things better, believe it or not, and spend a great deal of time on trying to get the most of the internet connection. Beyond that we are of course attempting to see about increasing our bandwidth in a couple of ways, but until that day arrives, we've got to work with what we have and we are not going to give up.

Justin, still drop by today and we'll test out whatever we can.

Even if not as many students were on campus last night and were potentially not as many users on the internet, we were mostly maxing out our connection the entire time I was at Drew- 90-95% in both directions. This is not actually typical believe it or not, so it would have been a good time to test latency in applications.

if you'll notice this post was after the other one which you quoted. and he said he clearly says they had to change things back to normal because those changes made it worse. and after reading that post it definitely didn't sound like they thought they had found a solution yet.

it seems to have done so.

12-05-2005 02:12 PM

yea. it does. but there's no way you're telling me that it sounded like they thought that change would fix evertying.
