thanks BioSlayer. i came here one day, checking in on posts, when i noticed the site thats has my avatar went down. ive been using this on other sites so i thought id upgrade here as well. and yes if it wasnt for the Defiant, i think ds9 would of went south real quick. it needed that mobility that the next generation had.

t1... LUCKY! i only got dsl becuase they had a good deal where i live. that and i really begged my wife to let me get it Roll Eyes. i am very happy with the results. 56k just doesnt cut when im trying to download 10mb files on up. im so stoked... Grin

~DEFIANT

100mb? well the speed depends on the connection to the server but it is usaly is less then 9 minutes.
if you want to try downloading large files DL a Bittorent Client like "Azureus" and goto
http://www.animesuki.com/
download the first Episode of a anime series and watch it.
I would recomend "Naruto" or  "Soukyuu no Fafner"
oh yea you also have to DL the DivX codec and maybe the Xvid Codec.
the anime Episodes on that website are perfectly legal to download.

also to add some more info on my sudgestion about the DL of anime. they are fansubs so the original japanese audio is still there but subtitles apear on screen to tell you what they are saying. so you have to be a decently fast reader or very quick on the pause button.

with my T1 i have DL over 350 gigs of anime.
now all i need is money to buy each series that has been bought by a US company.

also

is a good sight to find out what each anime is about.

If it's a connection to another participating university, I2 has connection speeds that are pretty fast.  I love DL'ing stuff from university of Minnisota's SF mirror.  My home connection is 0 bits/second.  Yeah, that's right, 0!  No one can have any higher mulitple of my home speed. Smiley

i know your pain my friend Wink but now, no more dial up for me. im never going back, and if my wife comes here dont tell her i said that. shed tell me "i told you so' Tongue.

BioSlayer:
what knid of anime is this. action, adventure? i havent yet had a chance to downloaded some yet. what im really looking for though is the american version of "star blazers" or in japan 'space battleship yamoto". if you know of this, please, point me in the right direction.

figured out why i was having trouble with my connection here to UQM. it was my firewall(zone alarm). i had to uninstall and then reinstall it for a dsl connection. ooops...its all good now.

It’s a website that links to ALL the fan-subs you can download.

http://www.animenfo.com
It’s a Huge database about anime. This site provides Information that even encompasses the character names and who does the voice acting.

Most of the good stuff just got licensed. Even though it’s a good thing it terms of I will be able to buy it in America, its bad in terms of you won’t legally be able to download it anymore.

A Space Epic? I wish they would make one of those, but I have yet to see something that would fit that description.  One that comes close is “Kiddy Grade” but that is licensed. One that is not licensed that you might just like is “Macross Zero,” but so far all of the episodes have take place on earth. “Planet ES” is set in space, but its lacks the conflict you desire.

Naruto is stories about ninjas who cast spells. It’s really cool.
"Soukyuu no Fafner" seems like a mix between “Neon Genesis Evangelion” and “Raxephon.” (only 2 eps so far)

But for your first DL I would recommend “Macross Zero”. Remember “Super Dimensional Fortress Macross” (Robotech) and Macross Plus? It’s about the “Unification Wars”

As for a few licensed that I think are worth buying:
“Uchuu no Stellvia” is an anime I enjoy. I know I should not enjoy this because of the sheer stupidity of the characters and the world, but I can’t stop enjoying that series each time I watch it.  
“Scrapped Princess” NO WORDS can describe how much I like this series.
“Witch Hunter Robin” is a great story about a secret world of witches in the present time and the people who hunt them down.

My computer at work? Well, we're on the Internet2, so if I'm browsing off hours I basically have three or four T3 lines at my disposal. I consider it a pretty sweet setup.

At home? No computer.

D_999 - Nice setup - but does it not get to the point to where you don't notice the difference between T1 and T3 lines? (when it comes to normal surfing - NOT downloads) I mean - don't you like max out the servers and-or your computer? Either way - nice setup.....

265k during the summer when I'm at my parents, 10 Mb line where i study. Sadly, that's a shared line so speeds vary from insanely fast to very fast.
