Okay, so after 35 minutes, I disabled Windows firewall, connected the modem directly to my netbook and got it working. W.T.F. After they reset it N times and everything...

Anyway, re-enabled firewall and surprisingly, it kept working! Huzzah!
New speeds :D

How about turning it off and back on again?

 

Nah, it's just you.

Hentai doesn't download fast. There aren't many seeders

 

What was it before? 20Mb/s? I believe it was around there.

 

It is possible to print a shipping label with paypal by the way. That is what I am going to do.

Today I did a Christian thing.

I have a Christian friend and he invited me together with another (atheist) friend to go to a church evening.
It started with mass, then dinner, then some workshop, then prayer, and then drinking. It was really quite an incredible and interesting experience. Of course I just kinda sat there during mass, and during prayer I was meditating instead of praying, but it still really left an impression. I've never been to mass before, and I've never seen people pray either.

It also completely changed my views on Christianity. At first I thought that religion was pointless because of all the culture behind it, as well as the fact it's so centered around humanity. And that while the existence of God is definitely not impossible (not in the Christian sense, in a philosophical sense), I did not see any reason to worship it. Now I feel like I can understand their whole motive behind it all, and I feel like I have some idea of what God is to Christians, and why they have all the humongous amount of tradition and rituals.
The people at the church were also really nice, and weren't pushing their religion on us either.

In terms of life experience I would definitely recommend doing this.

I have an IPS monitor too (though not high quality), and at extreme angles the screen becomes a bit more blue, but that's all. :P

I've done it before. That's why I don't advocate for the Christian vs Atheist thing. 

 

It gets a bit awkward when some ask you what your religious beliefs are or when they are praying but otherwise it is fine.

 

You can poke all the holes you want in their fancy book or ideals. But I have met and seen more giving and warm hearted people from Churches than I have from atheists. Just a personal observation here without stats. God or no God. Magical book or answers or none. That book of magic and answers has saved humanity in it's darkest times.

 

Like the song goes in Le Temps De Cathedrales

 

 

Quote:

Il est venu le temps des cathédrales
Le monde est entré
Dans un nouveau millénaire
L'homme a voulu monter vers les étoiles
Ecrire son histoire
Dans le verre ou dans la pierre

Pierre après pierre, jour après jour
De siècle en siècle avec amour
Il a ve s'élever les tours
Qu'il avait bâties de ses mains


Translation:

 


The age of cathedrals has come
The world has entered
A new millennium
Man wanted to reach the stars
To write his story
In glass and in stone

Stone after stone, day after day
From century to century with love
He saw the towers rise
That he had built with his hands

Obviously the companies are pieces of schiit. I remember OCZ did the same thing to people a while back with their SSD's. Just spread the word, and people won't buy.

 

@Chase

I see... 6 miles. I don't think it's much lol. I was an athlete about half a year ago. When I go biking occasionally, I usually bike for quite a while (about 5 miles... I never really keep track cause I have fun). Sedentary lifestyle of Americans. Sit in school for 7 hours. Good stuff. Don't even need 2-4/12 grades. So many problems with current day society and so on. I was about to type a page, but I decided against it.

I'm non-religious myself, but I truly find religion fascinating, as history is pretty much rooted in it.

 

Around here, I always get the same door to door knocker that preaches about Christianity, he swings by every few months telling me a little bit more about the bible each time.

 

Next time, he'll tell me why there are so many different languages despite Adam and Eve (not you, Eve) being the start of humankind. I promised myself not to google the answer, as I'm kind of looking forward to it. tongue.gif

As a student of European History. I have to agree. Early history of it from Medieval to modern 1800 periods of its history were VERY bad. The Catholic church was one of the worst there was. This is a problem that new atheists have at info.

 

Catholic Church bad=Christian bad.

 

The logic here is that....THERE IS A REASON, protestantism grew and came over to America and spread throughout the world. They knew it was bad. 

 

I don't get them :) Day 1034, I am still undetectedph34r.gif
