    quick speed test please?

    Got a little situation here -- we should have a good 2-3 Mb/sec of bandwidth open free and clear, but we have had a couple customers ask why everything's slow. Our network provider had their AC crap out and so the network equipment room is running at 90 degrees or so (doh).

    How's download speed of, say... http://www.modwest.com/perlmodules.html (478k + menubar graphics)

    Thanks for any help.

    ok -- are you on a 14.4 modem? Did it seem slow or snappy?

    If on linux: wget http://www.modwest.com/perlmodules.html

    and see what average kb/sec is

    thanks.
