My Complete U2 download took about 28 hours to complete. One of the many joys of 256kb DSL.

I got an average of 25kb/s, which took 5 to 6 minutes per song. Cable internet costs 10 dollars more than our DSL service and is up to 10x faster. The damage I could do with a connection that fast....

I hated cable internet. It never worked for me. I have dsl through the phone line. I don't really know how any of it works and what the difference is. I can't tell at all if this is slower or not. My brother said's only really slower if I download stuff but so far I've never noticed a difference. All I do know is I save $15.00 a month through my brother's work this way

you must be a very patient person.

I'd honestly don't know how anyone does dial up anymore. I go insane at my parents house when I use their computer. I dont like having to pay so much extra a month when I really should put that towards a credit card but dial up would just not be good for my stress level

ARW: Yay Ipod!!!

It took me like half an hour to get The Complete U2...which I was originally going to pass on but then I thought of how my Rattle and Hum and Unforgettable Fire cd's are starting to skip...might as well have some high-quality mp3's.

fahs: Get well!

LMPA: That's awesome that you're going to the May 10 show!!

damn! I wanted to make a Patrick only mix of Gaelic Storm for work and I forgot my cd's at my desk

I don't always like Steve's songs. They're all so sappy....

Patrick

i like steve songs

graaaaaah comeonsoxdon'tlosetothefuckingtigers

we still have dial-up at home. it's a bitch. my mom was going to get dsl, she had everything all ready to hook up, but it didn't work. she called verizon back, and they said they screwed up - we don't have dsl in our area. we live too far out in the boonies...we've got cows standing in the middle of the street and baby foxes walking across the road, so i guess it qualifies as the boonies.

Oh! The Boston trip I was planning with my sister? Not going to happen. My mom revealed that my sister's big graduation gift is going to be a used car.

That's fast! At this point I would've been at 12-14 songs on my connection.

Schmeg, do you have cable or DSL?
