    I can't believe they still exist. I've been on Cable since it was available [​IMG]

    Everything about my computer was state of the art in 1997.

    Hey there, your 56k modem is a valuable piece of equipment, especially for those times when Cable or DSL are down...it happens from time to time! Keep your dial up account active!

    What is this term you use "dial-up"? Are you up'ing a dial? I do not understand.

    I thought they only had the internet at work.
    At least its fast and free.

    I predict you will miss your dial up connection and drop cable just like the thousands are doing ever day. You don't know what you've got until its gone

    Yeah, "dial-up" is quiet ancient these days.

    My cellphone even has a permanent connection to the Internet that does not require dialing up. And it's 56k too.

    right ... that's what the carriers will lead you to believe.

    What portion of my statement are you doubting? The fact that it is a permanent connection, or the fact that I can get 56k speeds?

    the latter. unless you are somehow on a 3G network or have 4 slots on GPRS.

  21. Soundstream

    I hate when people say "the latter". I never know if it means the first statement, or the second statement. Like is it the latter in reference to which you read last, or which was written last. There is a difference and it is all a matter of perspective.

    Anyways, yes, I do have 4 slots of a GPRS connection. Most of the time anyways. There's a little indicater telling you (supposedly) how many slots you get. Mine's always at 100%.

    ah, so you have the latter then? [​IMG]
    so i take it you're on Fido/Microcell, which phone? must be paying through the nose for that.

    Just to make you jealous. [​IMG] That and to impress all the chicks. Yeah, that's right, look over here ladies ... I've got just what your lookin for ... a nice juicy 56k connection. Always on, just like I am. LOL.

    No, seriously, I don't "need" it and to be honest, I rarely use it. But that wasn't why I bought the phone, that was just one of the extra benefits.

    Cheers ... Ian [​IMG]
