Broadband Speed Tests

    Broadband Speed Tests - I have pinged about 10 servers tonight, half in France and half in Ireland & UK. Every French server is pathetically slow in download and pings (28ms) and uploads are in the region of 4-5 everywhere, I am supposed to be on 11. Best was Virgin Media Croydon with 125MB (I am on 120MB at present) and 12ms ping (I used to get 7ms) with slow upload again!

Anyone with a single boot SSD on UEFI tests if win8 really boots fast?
Okay, so I was interested to test out Win 8's boot time from "shutdown" (it's in quotes because if I remember it right, its shutdown is a complex hybrid with hibernation and a shutdown) to startup. What I'm curious is though, has anyone with an SDD and UEFI tried it out to see if they achieved...
