[REBOL] Re: How to find an Internet provider with Rebol CGI capabilities?

From: dhsunanda::gmail::com at: 18-Jul-2007 14:23

I'd be interested in speed comparisons between ISPs. With some caution, and a few lines of code inserted, it is possible to run Carl's speed test on your webserver: CHANGES NEEDED: * add a shebang at the very top * Insert these lines before the /print "running"/ print "Content-type: text/html^/" print "<html><head></head><body><pre>" * replace the /halt/ with these lines: print </pre> print </body> print <html> quit CAUTION NEEDED: If you are running on a shared server, then one test may hit a busy patch and give you unrepresentatively slow values. Probably need to run once an hour or so for a few hours and evaluate the range of responses you are seeing. I can tell you that the last time I tried it for we got disk speed values suggesting the drive runs on rusty clockwork. Sunanda.
