I fail. I have no net at home. No options in the country except dialup and satellite. No DSL, no microwave, nothing. My dialup is 19k. Yes, 19k. My wife uses it for email. I don't even try.

I remember the 1200 baud and waiting for the first interwebz to load over NCSA Mosaic. but our LAN was all ARCnet.

I've got TWC Turbo. 15 down and 1 up. I like it, for $29.99 a month.

*******.. I just got a letter in the mail, its going up to $44.95 a month come Jan 1.



Could be a little quicker if I shut down BitTorrent..
