    Can anyone explain why my I bought my broadband connection from
    www.sayuk.com (the £12.50 - 512k connection) why when I run tests on it, it
    runs at 920k ?

    I am not even close to the exchange.

    Interesting!

    BT$ upped their basic speed to 2mb - may be you get upgraded.

    The other possibility is to say something and have it downgraded.

    The third possibility, the clever option, is to shutyourmouthandsaynothin.

    Perhaps you should ask your tech support department ?
    Whilst you're at it, ask your abuse department about how NOT to
    market your site !

    I take it you mean 'lose'? Or did you really mean his website will become
    'loose'; like an elderly woman's genitalia?

    There's a thought for you all before snoozey-sleep-time...

  7. 920,000 bits/s or some other measure ?

    probably because you bought it from an incompetent supplier who either
    ordered the wrong thing or failed to apply their internal rate
    limiting to it.
    which is irrelevant as you get a fixed speed or it doesn't work at
    all.

  10. The Grove is a specialist maths and computing college at St Leonards on
    Sea, East Sussex <http://www.grove.e-sussex.sch.uk/>. Perhaps it's an
    over-enthusiastic student or lecturer?

  14. I surrender, I clicked the link and cut & paste from there

    Mrs Jones again :)

    Also at
    http://www.eastsussexcc.gov.uk/educ...ols/schoolsearch/schListings.aspx?dc=Hastings

    and the March 2005 newsletter says "Dear Parents and Carers
    New Headteacher for The Grove
    Mrs Jenny Jones will be joining The Grove as Acting Headteacher at the
    start of the Summer
    term."

    this was signed by your Mr Martin, so you're out of date :)

    Oh dear...I was at a meeting of the Specialist Schools Trust, with a
    rep. from that school, and the Head noted as Mr Martin. I'm sure you're
    right...I just read his name off the agenda. Cleraly the SST are out of
    date!

    His last written piece in the March 2005 newsletter was to bid his farewell
    while the opening piece, in the same newsletter, was to welcome Mrs Jones !

    Front page of the web site (admittedly perhaps off right edge of screen) is
    also indicating Jenny Jones, though she was 'acting Head' and it is not too
    clear for how long that would remain the case... perhaps there is a new one
    to be appointed for the next school year... Peter M.
