    We're always working to increase the features and visual appeal of BYC while trying hard to keep the site nice and zippy fast. This being the case, we're really curious how fast BYC loads for you all. A huge factor in this is obviously how fast your internet connection is.

    If you have 10 seconds, please do the following:

    1) Visit this site: http://speedtest.net/
    2)
    Click "BEGIN TEST"
    3) Vote in the poll for your DOWNLOAD speed.

    If you want, post the image link to your results (NOTE: It will show your general location and ISP). The option to share is after your test there will be a "share this result" link and then you can even click the "forum" option:

    UPDATE: It looks like their system measures only in Mbps and not Kbps. This being the case, you'll need to convert the Mbps to Kbps, for example, there are 1,000 Kb in a Mb, so if your result is around 0.05 Mbps, that would be 56 kbps (dialup).

    If you get 0.26 Mbps, that is about 260 Kbps
