mine say is B excellant and to San Franciso US C good. So that why I don't have much of a problem and I am using IE7 !
Internet Explorer 9, my firewall blocked the test. I couldn't decide what to do. Deal with it latter. Anyway, the distance may be a factor:
Adi Supriyo --Tabanan-Bali, Indonesia
Member Since: Nov 6,2011. Something to observe if I return to live chess.
I tried that test as I am also running Firefox with wireless broadband (on a Mac).
The test gave me an "F" rating,"'Very poor. Real time application performance will suffer greatly on such a connection".
This is true, as I suffer disconnections on other sites due to the fact that the live games require a good connection. My fix is to choose 15 minute games minimum as this gives me 5 to 10 or more minutes playing time.
The Connection here is Very Unstable !
Yeah,I can't play Bullet or Super Blitz ( also coz of lag ) .. I normally play 10/0 Rapid .. If I get to connect back sucessfully,still can make it,mostly .
.. recently got dcd from a lot of Tourneys.
.. Nowadays,it also happens frequently immediately after my Seeks r accepted ,so they get automatically aborted by Server or it says 'Game Abandoned' after that .( think we get 'credited' with d Abort if this happens coz we don't get to make our First Move )
.. Yeah,Tnx kco for d Test Link !
nope these are not relating to actual internet connection problems. these are errors by script running behind.This is happening in live chess only. I two 2-3 games in a row simultaneoulsy.. it all happens in the middle of a game. my clock stops and my opponent's ticks... I feel like he is going to get timed out.. suddenly it shows up that 'connection interruption' and my last move is not done and i lost in timeout...
pitty.. firstly i thought it is something related with premium membership but now i realise that it is not.
dont know why these scripts running behind may be some check to find fraudsters...
TheBAVARIAN Happened to me many times now...these connection interruptions. It is agrivating to the point where I want to stop playing life chess. I always lose, though time wise or other I should have won.
Sure has a way of bringing down a rating that was hard fought for. But....That's the way the "server" bounces ! :)
