Heh, my DSL went out once and within 2 minutes I was on the phone cussing my provider out. It was back on within 5 minutes of me getting off the phone. :-D

Oh how wrong you are my friend. I'd go nuts if I were ever back on dial up :-o

Agreed, I could never go back to dial-up. High Speed internet is great, I'd suggest it to anyone who doesn't have it ;-D

Man, I wish I had dialup. All we have so far down here in Australia is a paper cup attached to the back of the computer, which is attached to a long string, attached to another paper cup at the back of the server's computer. :~(

I think it depends on how much you use the Internet. I know several people who still use dialup but it's cool for them because they only use it occasionally and they just it to surf the Web. Many of us obviously use the Internet A LOT :-) so high speed connections are a blessing.
