    The modem didnt die every 5 minutes

    Every 5-ish mins the modem just stops for about a minute, which sucks. I WANT GODDAMN CABLE BACK.

    We all do bro, but we gotta be strong and pull through this. Anyways, at least we managed to get the 56k working again, imagine if we hadn't! We'd all be dead from Sharky withdrawl!

    I feel your pain. I just finished giving mine a good cussing. Why can't I get DSL? This sux.

    And you are complaining about what, precisely?

    I have friends who're on 28.8 (and one who is on 14.4) in INDIA, where lag comes from. It's our country's major export. It's what makes us so much better than Pakistan.

    Coming from the land of "download? what's a download?" and "ok, i set it to open hotmail, let's go eat dinner and come back," i feel pain you have no comprehension of. Be happy with your connection, and it may reward you by letting you get a game of Starcraft off without disconnecting you. Maybe.

    Well soon I will be going from a T1 line to a 28.8 connection. I think I am going to have a heart attack when my ping goes from 12 to 400. Why can't my rents just get cable, it'll be cheaper too, but noooo they want to spend more money.

    Hey, up until about a year ago, I was surfing with a 14.4k modem. I had to switch off images to make it somewhat bearable. So there.
