Dial-up


OK, so Auntie is a bit of a bitch. She calls me up and starts insulting me for still having dial-up Internet service.

She said:

"Does your bill arrive on a stone tablet?"
"Does your provider have Pterodactyls on their stationary?"
"Is the clock on your desktop a sun dial?"
"Do you have DOS macro log-ins?"
"What's your IP the number 1?"
"Your IP shows up as a Roman Numeral."
"Haa, Haa, you can't even download porno!"

We should start a "dial-up" Club.
just kidding

The high cost of anything faster than dial-uo prevents me from getting upgraded, some are 485.00 installation, one is an initional 300.00, then 199.00 per month after that. The phone companys can't even get us higher speed without major fees.

My cabin up north at a resort area, has got highspeed wireless for a mere 14.95 a month.....go figure.....Auntie cracks me up!

We had friends who lived in George, an unincorporated area in the vicinity of Estacada, and when the wind would blow they'd lose power. They had dial-up, too. Lynette could turn on the computer and sign in, then go clean the house, read a book, and cook dinner before she'd finally be online. Nah...it wasn't THAT bad but it'd take an average of 45 minutes to an hour at the least. With my insane schedule, if I still had dial-up, I'd NEVER find time to get on here and do anything.

Talk about SLOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW connections ...

The only reason my mom upgraded from dial-up, is because it took so long to download family pictures.

And if you think it's slow in XP, move over to Vista and it doubles its slowness.

I can't justify paying over $30 a month for it. Right now I pay $100 per year, while cable subscribers pay around $360 per year. Thats a dollar per day as opposed to 28 cents per day.

One day soon Internet II will be here and we will all be equal.

I get the same shit, Guy. Don't forget the emails that say "too bad you watch this. It's a video"
