    Rant- Pollution in Delhi increasing every year

    I wanted to thank you for the suggestion. I didn't know about the Mi 2C and I ended up getting it for my second buy as the Sqair was out of stock and I was curious anyway to compare. It looks pretty good on first impressions! I had mentioned that the Mi filter is 2200 vs 1490 for the Sqair (the...

    Rant- Pollution in Delhi increasing every year

    I can't think of anything. I get a burning smell even through the best 3M mask I have.

    Upload speed reduction over distance

    Thanks for the info. I would have thought that after initial slow start and with multiple threads, the steady state bandwidth measurement would take it into account. But maybe not...

    Upload speed reduction over distance

    Hello, So I have an Airtel V-dsl connection and I have two issues I need help figuring out: 1) I see a lot of reduction in the upload speed when going out in distance (shown below). Is this unavoidable? I don't quite understand why upload speed should drop off so much when going further out...
