    Speed demon

    Hi,
    I have just discovered a site with some nifty utilities for optimising PC/internet speed. I have run both of the programs currently available at the site and my computer now positively flies along. Anyone in need of more speed should check <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.looflirpa.com/default2.htm>this</A> out. Give it a whirl!

    Re: Speed demon

    ....it means, Avril, that when anything or anybody tells you that their product (or one they've used) will enormously increase the speed of your (correctly set up and configured) browser, that you take it 'with a grain of salt', which is to say you'll believe it when you see it.
    This one does something called 'scrubbing the TCP/IP pipe' and you have to stay on-site 5-10 minutes. Suspicious yet?
    I may be doing the guy a disfavour (for which I'm heartily sorry), but with a name like his and a date like today's, my grain of salt is a great big one. (and read the name of the website he sends you to backwards).
    I didn't want to spoil his spoof, which is why I put it in Latin.
    Cheers

    Actually, caveat emptor may be more appropriate in this case. Like any product, you really need to test it first to find out how well it works.

    Mind your language?

    I'm married to a Latin American, but I can't understand any of this Latin stuff.

    Re: Speed demon

    I dont know about the rest of the people who replied in this thread, but my time is precious and I read the information in this and other threads in emails Woody kindly send, because its quick and easy. I am not too thrilled when 14 out of the 15 entries in one mail are about idle chatter, and 2 of those entries from the moderator. There are millions of places to chat, so come on everyone, use the forum for its intended purpose, please.
