BJBJJ Posted August 15, 2010 Report Share Posted August 15, 2010 my internet connection is really slow and I cant figure out why. my friends tell me it is because I custom built my computer but I doubt this very much. I set out to develop a computer without using silicone in any way. my main processor is a hodge podge of wooden cogs and interlocking gears which are controlled by a number of cranks and pullys. it is awkward, there is silicone in EVERYTHING. for a keyboard I had to use an old typewritter, each key is attached to a different strand of piano wire which is inturn attached to a small balsa wood lever above my screen. each lever turns a different cog 1/4 turn thus defining what letter I input. it is all numerical, for the numbers 1-9 each cog has 1-9 teeth. the number 0 has 10 teeth, and the letters a through z have 11 to 36 teeth, then come capitals, then punctuation etc. in order to maintain an internet connection I have to ride a stationary bike whos chain is attached to another series of gears behind me..... I also have a large hamster wheel that I get my girlfriend to run in when I need to download things like pictures of cats, or hardcore internet ****ography. truth be told, the computer is essentially a 386 and requires ALOT of upper body and calf strength to run for any length of time. so back on topic..... anyone know why my connection seems to be slow? is it because my entire computer is made of wood and varnish?
