    You don't know how well you go it until you go to a third world country and use their internet services. For the first time since the late 90's, it feels like I am using dial-up. All I need now is the beeping sounds and the male, monotone voice to tell me I got mail.

    I miss streaming video, torrent downloading, IM's and porn browsing :cry:

    If it makes you feel any better, my parents still have that slow connection and AOL thing set up. They live out in the country on a cattle farm, and don't really have the options for dsl or cable or anything like that.

    56K sucks, you can't watch porn. Sorry buddy! I know how that feels sometimes.

    I'm pretty sure you could shove an ethernet cable up a cow's urethra and get better internet than AOL. I remember the days of using AOL. The horrible, terrible, days.

    Wow, I am an AOL user, have had my same account for about 11 years...no problems here.
    I have broadband...my internet is supplied thru my cable....but I remember dial-up days, they did suck!
    But now...AOL is nice for me to work with :)

    I wish you could put the dial up noise in words and letters.

    Either way, I'll watch double the porn so you don't get behind. You can pay me back later.

    56K 4EVR!

    Ah yes, AOL.

    Anyone miss that old browser they provided?

    I do. Miss it like I miss stabbing my hand with a chisel.

    Wow. The old days. I wasn't privileged enough as a kid to have AOL, so I didn't get to hear that lovely "You've Got Mail" crap every time I signed on. However, I think the sound of dial-up internet will always bring a nostalgic, wistful tear to my eye. God, if I had a dollar for every time I've heard that in my life...I was such an indoors type of kid. After we got the computer, at least.

    Oh. My dad had AOL and I got to use it when I was at his house. But I still never heard, "you've got mail!" when I signed on.
