  1. Time to brag

    Its possible to have latency less than 1ms. If you ping your local gateway, youll likely get less than 1ms. Ping also measures round trip time (RTT), ie to the destination and back.

    I'm pretty sure no one in the UK is using a T1 line. If they are, they sure as shit wont be using it as backhaul. Also - we only rent the dark fibre in the ground. We can light it at whatever bandwidth we want. All we need is kit that has the port capability and the optics. Swap 1gb optic to 10gb, to 40gb, to 100gb. Fibre doesnt change. The issue in the UK isn't backhaul. Its the access layer. Its all copper twisted pair and thats why DSL is used. Virgin use DOCSIS on coax cable, which doesnt suffer the same attenuation issues as DSL over twisted pair. Openreach managed to help a little by moving the DSLAM from the exchange to the cabinet and running VDSL to the home (as the DLSAM is now close enough) and then backhauling to the exchange with fibre. Backhaul is the easy part. Its getting reliable low latency bandwidth to peoples homes, and that can't really work over copper. Luckily openreach are obsoleting ISDN by 2025? And obsoleting copper by 2027 I believe. They're planning on doing FTTP to every home in the UK. No more twisted pair. Thats when backhaul is likely to become an issue.. As a few hundred mbps up/down will be easy to achieve on the access side for every customer, but the backhaul from the cab to the exchange will be super contended. Only time will tell.

    It doesnt matter who the ISP in the UK is, it all uses pretty much the same infrastructure. You're either using openreach in the last mile, or virgin. And occasionally virgin will use openreach.

    I couldn't give you stats on speedtest. Even if I could somehow get a machine that could generate the traffic and find a speedtest.net server capable of handling it, it would only work per flow. Long and short of it is: Im a net eng for an ISP. We have multiple 10gbps links with transit providers, other direct peers (think microsoft, google, gamma etc), and at internet exchange points around the UK. Probably about 100gbps aggregate bandwidth in/out. Unfortunately my connection at home is VDSL based.. 80/20 with BT..
  5. Recent changes to webserver

    Ah I see. Silly me - I have AV SSL inspection turned on, so it looks like it was issued by my AV software rather than the real issuer.

    Ha - you got me. How could you tell? The expiry date on the cert?

    I'll keep it short and sweet. We now (finally) have SSL (TLS) on the website. Your usernames and passwords are secure in transit! We've also made it so general browsing on the site is all done through TLS. That being said, please be careful about what images you link to the site. If it does not have HTTPS it will cause web browsers to report the site as not fully secure as some content is provided via HTTP. If it continues to happen I'll probably have to stop 3rd party linked images being displayed on the site. We've also gone IPv6!

  8. SSD upgrade from mechanical drive

    The samsung EVO SSDs are epic.
  9. Website upgrade - READ ME

    Yeah - I think the old theme is a lost cause.. Theres some php error on it and I can't fix it. Unfortunately I've had to start fresh with the this theme. It does mean most of the customisation will need to be added back, like donations and chatbox.
  10. Website upgrade - READ ME

    I've upgraded our website to the latest stable version on our current branch. This mostly went according to plan. Unfortunately the theme we use doesn't seem to be fully compatible. Most of the site works on the old theme but the index page does not. I've switched the default theme to this basic one for now, until we can get the updated theme files and hopefully fix the issue. Bear with me. Regards Mark

  12. I could not imagine a better use for a Glock

    Both videos posted showcase why guns do not belong in civilian hands.. If someone was drink driving or speeding, most people would frown upon it because its dangerous and irresponsible. Here we have someone who has a device designed for killing (because thats exactly what a gun is for) and is messing about with zero regard for safety. And that passes as cool. Anyone who disagrees is a lunatic leftie. Absolutely bonkers.

    Unfortunately we won't be able to run this on our server.
  14. Happy Birthday Matey!!

  15. 1.4.8.0 Update

    I've updated the server. Happy gaming. EDIT - posts below deleted: Server was updated to 1.4.9.0 a few hours after it was released... late to the party, zero
