    Not that old! As my older brother(!) is fond of saying; He's not old, just VERY experienced!
    Oh, and thanks for getting the wheels turning on my GPRS problem. I'm already seeing a slight improvement, unless it's just coincidence?
    Power of believe....

    But maybe they are doing something already. Saw some comms around your problem earlier today.

    Just curious... is the problem to do with air interface (AI), base station, SGSN, GGSN...? (See now, we're back on topic Mr IC )

    No idea yet, have not had any specific feedback.

    Hmmm...you know the architecture

    I doubt it'll be on the SGSN/GGSN, rather closer to home, might be that there's very little GPRS usage in your area and the time-slots are not enough. Or possibly transmission constraints.

    Ha! Bet you weren't expecting that! OK, we'll own up - husband was contracted to Nokia and Motorola some time ago... helped design Nokia's GPRS offering... worked on Motorola's multi-vendor air optimisation program. Knew it would come in handy some day

    Anyway, thanks for the thoughts - now I think it's about time we stopped being nerds for the night. I'm off.

    Thanks to everyone for making me feel MUCH younger ... you're all older nerds than me (especially you V3G).

    I only started when XT's came out and the first OS that I recall was DOS 3 .... unless you count that Atari console with tape drive that you could write code on.

    When i was in high school they still had some old pcs that my teacher called eniacs. Those also didn't have hard drives and required dos floppy discs to boot up. I'm not to sure where these pcs fit into your pc history above

    I think I spoke too soon - it's back to snail's pace today. Let me know if there's any news please. Thanks!
