Yeah, I remember a 300 baud dialup that lasted about 3 days before I
figured out howto get 1200, then 1200, 2400, 9600, 14,4k, 28.8 & finally
56k dialups. Now I have ADSL at 256k up/1.5M down for less money at the
end of the month. I don't think I'd survive having to go back, the
frustration would give me a heart attack or stroke.
