All these dudes posting "command/ping" / etc. are bullshitting. You know you all type in the address. Stop pretending otherwise.

My school's dining website. I used to use Digg before I stopped going there. Basically I just hit 'd' and go wherever it leads. Not sure why 'd' is the letter I chose.

My browsers tend to cache Google's home page and load it even if I don't have a connection, so I usually hit my GAF bookmark

Google. Even though I do use it regularly. If I need to be sure, I try a search.

When I was working in a tech support callcenter I made the customers visit lepel.nl or unox.nl to check if they are online. Personally I go to tweakers.net, higher uptime than google.

I would never go to a site I never go to to test my internet, since I usually just click my bookmarks and don't like typing URLs.

When my internet seems slow/down, I click on any random thread on NeoGAF (this tab is like, always open) and see if the images load fast enough, or at all.

If it doesn't load fast, I just assume the internet is down. GAF > internet > GAF.
