I do want to create art beyond rage. Cisneros (link)
Yesterday was designated for art. I’m on to a new project. Photos for a graduation album. Collecting, sorting, scanning, curating, printing.
Rinse and repeat.
BUT . . .
I hit a snag.
Upload one to a local store for printing was quick.
Upload two: same store and same app was deliciously simple.
Upload three . . .
. . .
. . .
In an hour three pictures uploaded.
Plan B. Put on a flash drive via zip files for downloading and printing.
Zip file created.
Downloaded to flash drive.
Two hours waiting.
Love it when it works.
HATE it when it FAILS.
Never did find a way to make the computer, app, or flash drive cough up the files with multiple restarts and complete shut downs.
Today . . .
My curiosity led me to check . . .
And then I checked in with the test directly through the provider. . .
Faster download by .44 mbps. Slower upload by .05 mbps.
One device connected and on. ONE!
Is this significant?
When I posted Tweets from my phone, I did not see them on my computer for hours.
Two devices connected and on.
Was it a surprise that the Speed Test associated with the internet provider typically gives different data from other speed tests? No, because I have had this conversation with
customer service, and
My internet provider lists this as “High Speed Connection” but as more “connect” in the area, service degrades. There is no other viable option in my rural area as satellite connections are worse with daily interruptions!
- “High speed” is not necessarily high speed.
- Data from the company providing the service/info needs to be considered as one source.
- Turning devices on/off is a great place to start, but sometimes glitches and errors need to just wait for a sunny day!
When has technology not cooperated?
