Ive decided to install a Xampp flavored development server on my laptop because uploading files to a web server on this connection is near enough impossible. At the moment Ive no idea what to do with my desktop, I seem to be using it for the same tasks I use this. Might install Linux on it later in the week. Ubuntu looks good. Or I might try Mandriva again. At least this time around I shouldnt have a problem with my internet connection. Trying to get connected to the internet before with my old BT Voyager was a task and a half!
Xampp is downloading at 44kb/s! Fastest rate off this connection this week so far. Oh wait, Ive just went and jinxed it. Its back down to 20kb/s.
