I have dial-up now so I wouldnt know different.

I do however, have the pleasure of 18Mbps *cough* yes 18Mbps speeds at University. Shame theyve blocked all the P2P and also the fact that I finish next week!

I have only had broadband for a few months and it is so much better than dial up but I think I could live without it if I had to.

I'd cry like a little baby. Then I'd cry some more.

Oh, wait! I don't have BB. :cry:

Really, I'm doing fine. You can't truly miss what you never had. It will be great when I do get broadband. I'll have to get another hard drive! :D

well this is what i was saying earlier, i was quite happy with dialup, most of the sites i visited did'nt have flash images on the web pages, i was'nt interested in Flash/Swish then, so the places i went to where quick to load, no problem, no need for b/band, then of course i heard about Swish, that changed my life, how i surfed for ever, i got b/band !

Basically, I limit myself to content that loads quickly. Long downloads I do overnight. When I do get broadband, there are going to be many new resources for me to tap. :)

I believe there are..music and video is quicker so they tell me, i don't do any of that though, am not interested enough, my time is spent only at the fav forums i have been to since i got b/band.
Before i had never even heard of discussion boards, now i'm addicted lolol and don't do nothing else.
I love the spirit of the communities they bring together, ways to support peeps through good time and bad times such as bee is having right now, i don't do hols, never been abroad cus i'm scard of flying (claustrophobia) keeps my feet firmly on the ground, but when asked about where i compute to, i say all over the world, this is the good part JrzyCrim, i speak to people all over, in many differnt countries, i love it !!!
Enjoy your b/b when you get it, i'm sure you will.
suzie.
:D

:) It's only a matter of time before I do. And yeah, like you suzie, I love forums. It's great being with people from all over. When I first got access to the internet, I spent most of my time on usenet and irc. I don't do IRC these days; Mainly stick to forums.

I'm mostly interested in streaming video when I get BB. MIT has free video lectures online. I can view them now but they stall out frequently and the quality is poor at 56k.

lol. I feel for you. Maybe talking to the cows is good thing. Maybe get to know them so that when they try to rebel, you will be there to smooth things over! :)

//Red bull is good, but when I want to stay up late an Amp (mountain dews energy drink)or a cup of java is all I need.
