Photosynth

Microsoft have acquired a company who are making several exciting steps towards changing the way photo's are manupulated by us. It's so hard to explain, I'll let you watch the video and leave you with some pics and some quotes below.

Photosynth Website

What if your photo collection was an entry point into the world, like a wormhole that you could jump through and explore...

The Photosynth Technology Preview is a taste of the newest - and, we hope, most exciting - way to view photos on a computer. Our software takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities, and then displays the photos in a reconstructed three-dimensional space, showing you how each one relates to the next.

In our collections, you can access gigabytes of photos in seconds, view a scene from nearly any angle, find similar photos with a single click, and zoom in to make the smallest detail as big as your monitor."

Seadragon

Seadragon is another photo manipulation project that changes the way we see photography. You really need to watch the video's to see what's going on, amazing stuff. Check that here

"Seadragon is an incubation project resulting from the acquisition of Seadragon Software in February. Its aim is nothing less than to change the way we use screens, from wall-sized displays to mobile devices, so that visual information can be smoothly browsed regardless of the amount of data involved or the bandwidth of the network."

IDNet customer support is 1st class tbh. I cant describe how much better it is than say AOL etc. The speed is quality too, I got up to 800k/sec on the last episode of Pure Pwnage! with an average of 560k/sec on a torrent!

With Be after having nightmeres with plusnet.

Only downside on Be is the BeBox, does some suckie udp stuff, stops DoW and CoH working.

I suffered chronically at the hands of Plus' traffic shaping policy, so moved to newnet. They've been excellent ever since, with fast speed and no reliability issues. I've had to call them once since I migrated, and that was an email account creation problem which was resolved immediately.
I'm a light user (in bandwidth terms) so I don't need a high cap on my connection so their £18 package suits me.

Its strange how people assume that just because IDNet had a bad month or so with really poor pings, that they are still like that.

5-10ms ping most of the time in CSS with IDNet here. Not had ping problems in a LONG time.

And for those that think that these uncapped ISP's are the answer to your prayers, think again. They WILL either get very slow and not have enough money to upgrade their lines, or they will make you pay a hefty premium for continuation of "unlimited" or high usage services. BT wholesale charge a LOT for bandwidth and these companies need to make a profit out of you ;)

I had these problems for months and I will admit when I didnt have the problems the speed and support was great I also left because of the pings and i needed a bigger limit.

Adam who owns idnetters was in my CISCO CCNA class and he told me that the ping problem still exists

I agree, when I was on idnet their customer service seemed quite good, altho saying that they were good at talking and not a lot else.
Loads of stuff they said which was wrong. Also they tried to pass the buck at every oppertunity :( (even tho it was their own system which was at fault).

On a speedtest I had 180k max, which always went down at peak times to 20k :( sync speeds were 2mb on adslmax, but on ukfsn adslmax I get 3.6mb to 4mb and the speedtest is 340k or over whatever time of the day.
Also the ping times are stable. On IDnet I had 300+ms every night to UK servers (for 3months). On the odd occaision in the daytime when the ping was ok, the ping to servers in NL were 300ms due to the routing.
This was when I decided enough was enough as I had some rubbish said to me on the phone (after the support bloke read my thread on the forum) which was totally wrong.
