Cyta Adsl speed sucks (oversubscription ratio… -> ∞)

Another time it is justed proved that what you pay is what you get

It is proven below that for 33/month you can’t get “business class” internet service

iperf for 24 hours from 100Mbit Dedicated server in europe to my little Ubuntu server hooked on the Cyta adsl line:
cyta downlink adsl speed

You can clearly see that some times during the day the 24 promised Mbps is more or less divided by 100 times ending up to have something better that an ISDN line

Το τεσσαράγωνο της παρακατιανής τεντόστρας, πατσίζει με τη σούμα των τεσσαραγώνων των δυο παϊδιών που στέκονται σούζα.

Ή αλλιώς:

“Το τετράγωνο της υποτείνουσας ενός ορθογώνιου τριγώνου ισούται με το άθροισμα των τετραγώνων των δυο κάθετων πλευρών”

Έχετε δει ποτέ πρόσωπα να σχηματίζονται στα σύννεφα του ουρανού;
Πρόσωπο στο σύννεφο ή σύννεφο σαν πρόσωπο;
πρόσωπα στον Άρη σαν και αυτό;
πρόσωπο στον Άρη

Αυτόν που ανεβαίνει στο δένρο τον βλέπετε;;;
άνθρωπος που ανεβαίνει στο δένρο
Νομίζετε οτι είναι τυχαίο;


είναι όλα στο μυαλό μας

Hello all,

Just wanted to share with the world some thoughts about the new project I’m into.

The basic idea is to construct a homebrew BCI using open source software and harware. Of course some people have already done that, like it always happens on cyberspace.

You can find more info here:
The basic idea is to plug one of these things:
Active electrode on my skull, and monitor brain waves on my PC. Later on I can train myself and be able to control the PC. Then as technology advances I’ll be able to be 24/7 plugged, and transmit brainwave data via 3G, WiMAX, LTE or whatever, and make the DSP on the cloud. Realtime data will be logged, monitored, and be sent back for feedback and self-evaluation.
These are the first steps. Whatever the actual outcome of this, I will be trained one day earlier. Later when singularity happens and we’ll all be able to upload our brains there would be no need for BCI‘s.
I also hate it when they say something on BBT that I’ve already thought or read and then it becomes mainstream.

Mad World…
