Winston the pigeon took two hours to carry the data 60 miles - in the same time the ADSL had sent 4% of the data.

Telkom said it was not responsible for the firm's slow internet speeds.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I might be in South Africa for next Summer's World Cup. Nice to know that if I can hop aboard the train from city to city, it'll take me 5 or 6 hours... to book the tickets online. :-b

You know what this thread just reminded me of: I'm Bill Curtis and I'm faster than Andy Roddick.
