 :lol: That Pegasus needs normal maps. :p

BTW, do any of you guys have a problem where the images overlap the text on some cases? It goes away when I refresh the page, and hasn't happened on any of the other sites I go on.

Re: Freespace Motivational Challenge!
Yes, I've had that problem, it goes away with a refresh, I'm using Mozilla FF 2 latest version... I think it's when the page incompletely loads, and FF just displays what it did get.  'Cause sometimes eg, the buttons won't have their associated pictures, and they only have text (in the main forum list).

Re: Freespace Motivational Challenge!
Yeah, or it could be a partial incompatibility issue. That's unlikely though, as more sites are keyed to Firefox.

Re: Freespace Motivational Challenge!
Umm, it's rather rarely that it happens to me; usually, I'm uploading at max speed, and downloading at maybe half speed, as well as surfing... then it happens.  Or if my connection is having a hiccup.  Normally, though, it doesn't occur.

Re: Freespace Motivational Challenge!
Does Utorrent completely kill your internet like BitComet does? When I'm up/downloading it makes my broadband into dial up for any other tasks that I'm running, even if it's only using a small portion of my bandwidth.

Re: Freespace Motivational Challenge!
Limit the amount of connections.  Most likely it's clogging your router CPU, all the bandwidth in the world doesn't help if your router CPU is using 100% to just handle the amount of connections in and out. That's the most likely culprit anyway, if you've already limited it then I'll just shut up 'cause I don't really know what more can be done about it then.

I use Azureus Vuze, though, so I can't say anything about muTorrent [it's not actually UTorrent, the letter in front of it is the greek small letter mu. It's a reference to being small, as mu is used as the mark for "micro" unit prefix, or 10^-6 magnitude] or BitComet... the only problem with Azureus is that it's a bit of a resource hog... but I have more than enough RAM anyway and I can set the process for it to lower priority so it doesn't really interfere with other stuff I'm doing. Most of the time anyway.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Re: Freespace Motivational Challenge!
I used to use Azureus, then dropped it, as I was a bit ticked off at them, and they were a resource hog... Any BT client can max out your router CPU, It does mine...  One of the things I've noticed that helps 500% (I can download @ max speed, upload @ max speed, and surf with only a barely noticeable delay) is cFosSpeed.. unfortunately, it's not free, but you can try it for 30 days.  OK, and BTW, your global max upload speed  in a BT client should be 80 - 90% of your real max upload speed, which you can find by:

Stopping all internet activity (not pausing the torrents, stopping them or closing the client, stop all streaming music, etc)...
Open up www.speedtest.net , let it find your max upload speed.
-divide the result (which is Kbits/sec) by 8
-multiply that result (now it is KBytes/sec) by 0.8 or 0.9
-Set that result to be your max upload speed, in KBytes/sec

This will optimize things for you... and, if you use uTorrent, use the Speed Guide (CTRL+G in main screen) as well, just make sure your upload is set appropriately after its done.

Oh, and if you find your internet slacking, even after throttling down / stopping your BT, try unplugging your router for 30 seconds or a minute... I have to do that with mine, it's a Motorola WR850G...

BTW, does anyone know a way to make your connection faster or better (a free method if possible)?
