Liberty Reserve is Down - Owner Arrested

Posted on May 25, 2013 @ 10:43 am - Tag : news

Liberty Reserve's web site is currently not working. Their domain names are not resolving. The blog site where they post maintenance news is also not working. Further digging shows us that their nameservers now points to ns1.sinkhole.shadowserver.org and ns2.sinkhole.shadowserver.org. They say that this nameservers are used for domains that are seized by the US governnment.

We searched further and we found this article. The article says

Arthur Budovsky Belanchuk, 39, on Friday was arrested in Spain as part of a money laundering investigation performed jointly by police agencies in the United States and Costa Rica.

Costa Rican prosecutor Jose Pablo Gonzalez said Budovsky, a Costa Rican citizen of Ukrainian origin, has been under investigation since 2011 for money laundering using a company he created in the country called Liberty Reserve.

As of now we are not sure if Liberty Reserve is still going to return or not. Let's just hope for the best.

Comparing VPN Download Speed Using Speedtest.net

Posted on April 23, 2013 @ 11:40 pm - Tag : how-to

You might say that a how to is no longer needed to test your download speed since using speedtest.net is very easy. Just open the website and click away! Well, that is correct but most people are doing it all wrong when comparing their normal internet connection and their VPN connection using speedtest.net.

You see when you are comparing things you need to compare apples to apples and not cows to apples.

Normally people would compare their download speed using the steps below:

  1. Open speedtest.net on browser to test their normal internet connection download speed.
  2. Connect to VPN server
  3. Refresh the speedtest.net page(some users are not even refreshing the page) and run the test again
Well that is not correct since your first result is definitely going to be faster than your VPN download speed. The reason for that is on your first test you are downloading a file that is probably (99%) locally hosted in your country and on your second test it is farther away from you and probably from a different country. Of course the locally hosted file will be faster since it will only be a few miles away from your location. Testing your local download speed is really useless since most of the files we download and websites we visit are hosted farther than those locally hosted files.

To fairly compare your VPN download speed you need to download the same file or at least they must be at least close enough. Your new steps should be like this:

  1. Connect to VPN server
  2. Open speedtest.net on browser to test your VPN download speed.
  3. Disconnect VPN
  4. Do not refresh the page and just run the test again
That way you are downloading the same file. With this you are now testing your real download speed and the download speed of your VPN. If your VPN download speed is more than 10% slower than your normal internet connection then there is probably something wrong with the VPN server.
