I have 2 tracks in Google Music that when I download via Chrome extension, get to 100% yet never appear on disc! Every other track works fine!

I don't care so much about the tracks (one was free, and I don't want it), but it annoys me that something can pretend to work, yet fail. Google's support is so bad; there's no way I could even report this to a human that cares :(

Cool for hobbyists/indies... Unreal Engine free for all dev, and up until you've made $3,000 (per product, per quarter!).

Big fan of this sort of thing; make the bigger customers subsidise the little guys. I know they're doing it for their own benefit (get more people using their engine), but it's still neat :-)

Before Christmas, +Lars Bak​ and I spent some time chatting with +Scott Hanselman​ about Dart. It was a lot of fun and hopefully it's worth spending (quite) a few minutes listening to!  #dartlang

Google+ AutoBackup + ADSL users; please help my gather info to diagnose a fault with my ADSL!

After months of investigation, Sky have given up on my fault because they say it only affects on site and is "site specific" (this logic is flawed, no website should be able to cause this, but I don't get to talk toa technical person directly).

I'm trying to show that this is not normal (many people have told me it's not) by collecting some information. If you're on ADSL and use Google+ AutoBackup, please take a minute to test this and post your results!
I have a strange issue with my broadband (Unlimited, ADSL, Sky Hub) that Sky have been investigating for months. Recently something changed that ma...

Awesome. Wonder if it will support more codecs.

Is it normal for uploads on ADSL to make the connection unusable (> 4000ms latency)?

Getting mixed responses so far :-/ Is my line bad; or is this normal?
I have an ongoing saga with my internet connection; where the latency periodically goes through the roof. In most cases, this seems to coincide with something uploading data. I'm not having a lot ...

Someone on Reddit sent me to http://netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/.

This reported the following:
Network buffer measurements (?): Uplink 2500 ms, Downlink 919 ms –

We estimate your uplink as having 2500 ms of buffering. This is quite high, and you may experience substantial disruption to your network performance when performing interactive tasks such as web-surfing while simultaneously conducting large uploads. With such a buffer, real-time applications such as games or audio chat can work quite poorly when conducting large uploads at the same time.

He suggested this is likely the modem being poor, or a bad line.
 
One of my original theories was a huge buffer somewhere (probably the modem); think I'll try and get hold of another one and test that.
 
I'd be interested to know what values other people get from that test.

Well those numbers are seriously low compared to mine. Need to get some others to test to see if mine are massive abnormal; in which case I'll pass them on to the guy at Sky that left me his details!

Video of my Xbox One... It's far from silent; suspect this might be dodgy?

Only ever hear mine when I first put a disc in. That one wasn't healthy! Good they swapped it :)

Anybody got/play Xbox One?

GamerTag is DanTup; currently got Forza 5, Forza Horizon 2, GTA V, Halo MC Collection.

Any recommendations? Titanfall any good? Destiny? Anything like GRAW? Used to like Ghost Recon on 360, but didn't like CoD; though CoD seems to look way different now compared to the original 360 one I played?

I thought I'd removed dupes, but must've missed that; had both in my list. Removed the work one now, so shouldn't see it in auto complete list!
