Re: Wifi speeds

My laptop connects to my D-Link DIR-655 and shows 130mbps, which is equal to about 16MBPS. I don't know just how accurate it is though. Never tested it.

Hot Sauces

I'm looking to hear opinions on what is the hottest sauce they have ever tried. For example, this is the hottest sauce I have tried and it had a burn that would not go away. Never did finish it.

Re: Neighbour's whoopsie
