My parents just got DSL, so once I move home I'll be better off. I'm not quite sure what the speed is, but it seems...fast enough for me.

Funny thing about DSL is that the speed depends on the market. Telecoms and ISPs have to negotiate speeds with the regulating agencies in each state, and if you have some slow ISPs they will 'drag down' the max speed. Meaning that your maximum speed is set more by a political desire to foster competition (the slow ISPs would be hosed without artificial caps) than technical issues. Kind of makes it tough to know in advance what kind of speed you'll get. Cable isn't as tightly regulated so you might be able to get faster connections with that (depending on the market), but the trouble with cable is the more people in your neighborhood who have cable modems, the slower your connection will get. That's not a problem with DSL. And even with 'slow' DSL you could still download the contents of full CD in just a few minutes.

(I'm working for a telecom now, so that's what prompted the 'sermon'. And I now have free dialup. Mwa-ha-ha-ha!)

I have a 166MHz beast. It has MMX technology to make the screen redraw superfast! Booting Windows takes mere minutes.

I bet you're all really jealous.

I connect using a modified version of the '2 tin cans and a peice of string' method. My PC' is made with blue tac and an old gameboy. I don't ask how it works, and it doesn't tell me.
