    I was wondering if I could ask a quick favour from any techie minded members, as I'm looking at upgrading the current webserver and I'm debating a couple of server locations :).

    If you could post your average ping times to the following domains, that would be a huge help - as I can see which location works out fastest for most people:

    speedtest.dal01.softlayer.com
    speedtest.wdc01.softlayer.com

    If you could also post your State (if from USA) or Country, that would be a big help.

    From the UK, my results are:

    speedtest.dal01.softlayer.com - 138ms
    speedtest.wdc01.softlayer.com - 101ms

    Thanks guys, that's a big help :).

    If there are any more members from the West Coast USA, Aus/NZ or Europe, I'd be particularly interested in ping results.
