High and “Dry”

Still high and relatively dry. Street in front of house has drained. Some nearby stores have reopened. Hillary is napping comfortably in my lap.


 

CatBeard Manor and its surroundings are an island in the midst of the flood. As the rainfall dissipates things will only get better here.

HOWEVER – life in general will take a long time getting back to normal. In all directions away from us roads are closed due to flooding.

Uh oh – Internet just went out. Uploading via my cellular data link …

Upload UPDATE | Brothers HD

So … today I decided to run speed tests on my Internet again …


There are two sets of numbers for December 10 (alternating) … 150+ / 11+ and 70+ / 1+

The faster numbers on December 10 are for the 5 Ghz Wi-Fi channel and the slower for the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi channel. The 5 Ghz Wi-Fi channel is fast enough to keep up with the native cable modem speed, the 2.4 GHz channel … not so much. I think I knew that, but had not paid attention as I always connect via the 5 GHz channel.

My son confirms that direct wired connection is running at full speed as well.

I am definitely getting a “performance discrepancy” with Comcast that varies throughout the day. Does this reflect bandwidth congestion from other users? Probably.

Will retry the upload now.

SUCCESS
