    I finally switched to REAL broadband, aka Roadrunner, I was using a local provider but I was capped at 256K down and 128K up, WOW! I had no clue how much difference it could make, WOW! now I'm capped if you can call it that at 3000K down and 384 up! Life is good. :w00t:

    Great for you, man. I loved RoadRunner when I had it, so fast and a great ping. Now I only have 1100down/1100up and a so-so ping =\

    I remember using a 300 baud modem on my old trs-80 and I signed up for compuserve for 6$ a month. Someone uploaded a rogue clone onto one of the BBSes and I took me about a hour to download it.
