Ha, I was barely even aware of the Internet then, really. Didn't get it until 2002.

I never got internet until early on in 2006. Laaame. I bet we still have the same options now as we did then.
And yes, I had dial up then, too.

Probably about 100MB, if you were lucky.

But once we got on unlimited, From memory I could download about 20MB per hour on 56k.....so back in the days of U2bloodredsky.com (do ya remember that site?)....I could probably download 2 Shows overnight....It worked quite well waking up with 2 new U2 Bootlegs. Then of course it took 2 weeks to get the Miami VCD!

I don't think I could've tolerated downloading a whole VCD.

Does U2bloodredsky still even exist?

I believe that worked out if I did nothing else while the internet was connected.

Lame. I did dialup from either May or June 2002 to either December 2003 or January 2004. DSL since, with little change to my speed or anything.

I could only just tolerate it. And when I got it, the audio got out of sync which was such a bitch!

Bloodredsky i think still exists as a U2 Hub on the DC++ program thingy...

Where I live really needs to get with it.
It's either that, or I just need to move!
