As you expected, no benefit for ARMini users:
ARMini with RO 5.20 (10 June 2013) and !Boot on the SD card, not the
USB drive. NS #2771
There was no complaint about the bandwidth being too low but the
reported average from going only to the www.buxtonweather.co.uk
was 27269 bytes/second. The previous figure I reported was 33092
I wonder how stable the measurements are. I've just upgraded this
ARMini to RO 5.22 so have redone the measurements, still with NS#2771:
161126 bytes/second. That's a massive increase. I had visited a
number of websites for that.
Trying going to just www.buxtonweather.co.uk
(my homepage) as before
now gives 154588 bytes/second - only 4% different.
Have I missed something, or have ROOL done something spectacular in
the changes from 5.20 to 5.22?
