Newsgroup/Usenet company with the highest retention and lowest price

by on Apr.28, 2015, under General


There are many companies out there for your anime usenet downloading needs (or…whatever else it is that you like to download). I have used many over the years, both here in the US and areas around Europe. Of all of them, the one I like most (and always brag about) is Newshosting. There are many things you have to look for like retention (the amount of days their servers can go back to find a post/file), the speeds they support and how much do you have to pay?

No excuse for the slow downloads on Xbox Live

by on Apr.23, 2015, under Games


So we have a scenario here! I have an Xbox 360, hard wired to a gigabit network running through a house, riding on a cable connection of 120+mbps (varies usually between 120 and 130). Everything else connected makes use of the full connection. The Xbox 360 takes about 1 minute+, to download 16.89KB? A file so small, it shouldn’t even be a thought (and barely a memory for the console). Yet here we are in 2015, downloading at speeds that AOL in 1999 would have laughed at. What the heck is going on Microsoft?????

I understand that networks can be stressed down, but when you have millions of fans not only paying you for the console and games but yearly on top of that just to be able to use it…you have no excuse for cutting back. Especially that badly. Microsoft needs to step up their game!
