The op didnt have a problem believing they could compress that rapidly at their end. He had issues believing that people on rubbish computers with no gpu support could decompress fast enough on the recieving end.

I couldn't agree with you more. Ragnar Tornquist has been saying he will finish the dreamfall saga with Dreamfall Chronicles for the past 3 years. Considering Dreamfall had a huge number of plot holes and a massive cliffhanger ending i consider it a bit unfair how long we will have to wait to find out what happens. Especially if it ends up being another 3+ years.

Comment Re:Lag. (Score 2, Insightful) 316

AS a long time eve online player i can say that yes lag can be pretty terrible sometimes. But after alot of time and effort things have improved massivly. recently ive been involved of battles of about 1200 people were there was some lag but the game was still playable (generally what happens is there is some lag on modules but you can see move around and warp in and out ok which is the important bit that keeps you alive) Now days pretty much any server on the cluster can handle a 600 man fleet fight and the reinforced servers which handle the major crunch points can handle 1000+. The future of eve though is making it so that the resources of the cluster can be dynamically allocated to systems (at the minute a system can only utilise one server). This is a long term project that they have been working on which will allow the eve cluster to utilise the huge amount of unutilised power it has atm.

Im on virgin and yes they will throttle your download if you download more than a certain number of gigabytes between their busiest times which is fair enough. I prefer that to a download limit dont you. In my experience though it doesnt alter my ping so you have some other problem going on there. My tip with virgin is to do any of your large downloading in the evening or at night.
