Welp, I just switched over to DSL with Verizon.
Wow. The pages load faster than I can open new ones or maximize the windows. Whee. Forgotten what broadband was like!
Anywho, I JUST plugged the DSL modem in, have no firewalls, or anything of that sort up and running (Heeeeeere haxx0rz haxx0rz haxx0rz) and...
Whaddya know, the Uru Patcher won't update.
On 56K, the 'Checking for Updates' little bar/window would be open for on average about two seconds, and either flash full and restart, or not flash at all and load the launcher.
On DSL, it stays open for a good 10-15 seconds, flashes full, and restarts. Does it four times, then says it couldn't update after three attempts. (BTW, math iz gud. Lern math. Math wood fix teh four/three text arror.)
Now, 56K would be a bit hit/miss and spotty with the updating, but on average I'd get through more often than not. Occasionally it wouldn't update after 3/4 attempts, but most of the time it'd get through on the second or third try.
Tonight, two tries, make that three, and still not getting through.
So what's the point of this post?
It's not a bug report (though if the devs see it, it'd be nice for them to say so so I wouldn't have to wade through their site to send the bug report to them), it's a "If you're having problems, try a dial up service or different ISP for once," post. Because this DSL isn't working right now, at least for patching.
