Hi there. I'm curious about this point. When did you leave dial-up internet and started using dsl/cable? In my case, it was in the summer of 2002, 4 years ago. What about you?

I started using cable around 4 years ago and dsl a year back. Now I find dial-up so frustrating. If Im using dial-up I have to be doing something else as well otherwise Id probably rip the computer apart.

That's right, I can't even imagine how it would be for me to return to dial-up... it's so slow that I can't even think of waiting so long for a site to load. Thanks for your reply.

I donĀ“t remember very well, but I started having DSL connection about 6 years ago. It was very expensive in that time, so I cancelled it and just got it again 3 years ago.
