    19.2 I'm cruisin' now... woohoo /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Pinche dialup.. we can't get cable out where I live because they are too money hungry to run it to the few homes out this way. My wife asked me, today, about gettin satalite... but at 600 for equipment.. or 99.00 bucks a month for 6 months.. **** that.

    I would rather get a Detroit for my D60! /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Ha, I did the test (only got 328k for some reason), but then clicked back and it automatically ran the test again but the pic was cached so it said "Infinity kbps" /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Edit: got 2869kbps on the second "real" test

    unclematty - my cable is only 29.98 a month, cheaper than a second phone line and dial up. Actually, I don't have a land line phone, so cable is cheaper for me than it would be to have a phone and dial up. And it's crazy fast.
