Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Pleasant surprise this morning when I came to look. The scrip ran nicely over night. I think I can say I have got control of the date/time format. I am using us time format it seems, this I however was on the alert for but the 2013 took a bit of waking up to, %Y. I did not initially notice the "\" i...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Boy that time format had me pickled, I understood the concept fine but just could not get it to take the xdata. I think I managed though, the first thing I noticed was that my time format is US ie m,d,y and for that matter m,d,Y. the last thing straining me to get the xrange set not sure what I was ...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Pheeeew I am struggling with some memory problem and bad choice of file names. At lunch time I made an attempt to add the Exetel Speedtest, I failed so I will be lagging a bit behind. Just silly mistakes like not really "seeing" what I have written but seing what I want to see. :x No I am leaving re...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Just finishing a reply and Opera crashed, it does that now and then. :( I managed to get the new script going before going to bed, but the xaxes date formatting failed. I will look at this some time today as I am curious about getting that to go. In the mean time I am running on default or basically...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Ok, I understand the script, unfortunately I headed straight in to one of those dreaded errors that seemingly can't happen. I copied your active script part and added this to 10 seconds after the first download finished download my test file I have been using all along. I could see on the graphics d...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Thanks Dazzled , I will get on to that after I have written a bit more, mainly for my own record when I save this page, on the slight drop in speed which I investigated at Saturday midnight/ " Sun 17 Nov 2013 " marker in previous graph. I have tinkered with the graph again. Added gnuplot labels for ...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Something is happening to the speed, dropping saturday morning. Chance to experiment. Going to check my adsl info, then reboot modem and repeat adsl info check. In the chart, I have added Week day at midnight and day is split in 3 8 hour sections. The tall peak marker and two shorter. Just for quick...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Thanks for link. Gnome use noted for terminal. I tried a couple of graphics terminals, GIF, PNG, as well as postscript but sent the output to a file. this works but in my case I lost the colours, not surprising though. Left it at that and started re-organising to use individual files for SNR, QLN, H...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Dazzled I am slowing a bit as there is so much I am curious about. Your last reply added a few more items I must look into later. I will pick up on the set term . I tried and got a lot of terminal formats that I did recognise. I tried a few but the screen seems to show the content you would send to...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

The previous picture using the "index" in default mode also has values from my previous use of a command file, I think. Notice so far I have never had negative values on the y axis and not for lack of trying. I have just done a real time test on the modem, recording the: SNR, QLN, Hlog and Bits, I h...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

When I was checking the column shift, to see if my perceived problem when plotting the data file was real, I decided to do a quick check on the use of "index" . The format of my presnet adsl information retrieval data file is: #Start of real trial #Commented header lines if needed # # # Tone number ...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

I find fun part is a nice bonus when learning new things also having a problem is great motivation to try something new. I really was going to skip this learning step and go for DMTool, despite having to run XP, but I am very happy for your help to stay in Linux environment and learn from basics. Mu...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Struggling with time, wild storm here last night, we were running around outside securing a few things at 2 in the morning. This got in the way of my playing with plotting. I will just show the following picture from a 30 min run with the new modem, which I still did not manage to install on the LAN...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Grrrr, I should never have mentioned I was going to stop recording, eyballing data for tomorrows chart is not promising. Previous 24 hour chart has a big dip when the modem was taken out of action while testing the TP-Link modem (which is not installed yet, as I need to set up the wireless lan with ...
