I’m running two systems right now (64 and 32 winxp)
I did a reinstall of the 32bit winxp (pretty much everything else as well) the other day and everything seemed to update ok including office, adobe, java, antivirus, etc… and I was back up in no time as usuall… although hotmail still sucks (but i think that has more to do with hotmail than anything else).
A few weeks prior to that however, it took all MS updates (I use EN-versions of MS software), inc. adobe, java, etc. longer than a day to update (or download) each :fume: :fume:. It was as if my connection was non-existent despite the fact Google was loading ok (but of course that doesnt really mean much anyways). I thought at first there was something wrong on my side or that something went wrong during the new install (which is why I reinstalled again later)…
Office alone normally takes ~ 15 minutes for me (on a clean install) if that. Btorrents were slow as hell too… speaking of which – I have a few current transactions as I type this… I’ll run the test when all the torrents are done, which should be tomorow THX for the link! I’ll post the results for you by tomorow eve.
I’ve pretty much made up my mind anyhow – zhonghwa is teh suxor… I’m prolly gonna go TFN as it seems to be the best alternative at this point in time. I’m headed to their office tomorow – lemme know if you might want to know anything ahead of time and I’ll try to get that up for ya as well.
I just got back in from HK (visa run) it’s past 4:00AM right now and I’m tired as hell… thx again for the info.
