Well, not quite.... I've just gotten my new cable modem installed which has boosted my speed to an increadible 50mb/s!! I've also just discovered that my trusty Linksys router can't keep up, so I'll have to retire it and get a faster one, other wise I'm stuck to around half speed - damn.
So, I need to put my room back in order (theres upturned desks and what-not) then I can setup the plus4 again and start to get back to work. I've been thinking about my electronics again, and I really want to get back to doing some more - before I forget it all, and this lead me to thinking about doing a better download system. You see, as it stands I need a parallel cable/port and thats limiting - particually since I have to switch my machine off/on to enable the driver and plug in the C64 or Plus4. So I was thinking about a USB cable. Theres a few USB to serial cables, and if I did that (along with a PIC or something at the other end), I could pretend its normal parallel cable on the Plus4 side, but do serial on the PC side. This would also mean it was suddenly hot plugable, and allow me to plugin multiple machines at once; not to mention being able to download without rebooting.
So, I may start to look at that kind of thing this year too.
