HOLY SH!T this is FAST
I was expecting a few megs/sec, but HOLY CRAP…. The screenshot doesnt even show its high, which I think I was in the mid 70 M/s
It seems faster (or at least less annoying) to wget large files to a Linode and then scp (or whatever) them home than to download them directly home. Ran into this a few weeks back with a ~3.0 GB download from $GenericFPGAManufacturer …
I've built a deployment process that relies on third-party hosted version control repositories. Deploying on Linode is faster than, for example, Rackspace managed hosting. Shame I don't actually use it here. I was just testing.
(did a wee when my eyes popped out at the speed)
Also the server out preformed the game server we normally play on by far.
My mate suggested I got a linode so that I could learn more and have a "live" test environment.
Man this guy was so right !
I will be certain to renew every time !
the guy in question is gary @
