I have broadband, but rarely go on youtube either. I'm either downloading music/movies or on interference!
The answer's simple: Dial up or nothing.

It is such a pain in the arse though. It only stays connected for up to 6 hours at a time. Provided a call doesn't come in.

Pretty good. Bored as all hell though! Debating on making some more icons.

Since I had no laptop, I couldn't take advantage of that at my hotel in Boston. Five days without the Internet! Probably the longest I've spent away from it in the last five years, heh.

It was so handy having the laptop. I think the only hotel we didn't have internet in..was the Holiday Inn in Los Angeles when we first arrived...but after that we had it everywhere....so much fun, downloading the show that I'd just been too the night before.

Oh how I'd love to do it all again!

I remember I had a 350MB download limit, which was very limiting! In the school holidays, Mum let me shoot past it since it was cheaper than going to the movies.
