DSL modem has arrived. Will now attempt to install. Keep your fingers crossed. This will undoubtedly be a bumpy ride. Don’t worry, it won’t keep you from accessing the Whatever; it’ll just keep me from accessing the Whatever.
Update: 6:15 pm — Oh. My. GOD. So much speed.
I can only imagine that the mug fulla coins is the collection you got at the street corner to pay for the spangly new service.
I’m more worried about what that bottle of super-glue is for. And how does the open Coke can figure in the installation?
The Coke? That’s easy: sugar + caffeine = 1337 h4ck3r
Welcome to the dark side. There’s no turning back.
Wait’ll cable arrives in your neck of the woods. Unless SBC’s opened up a really fat pipe on your DSL.
That’s what I was thinking. My bandwidth monitor on my cable modem frequently hovers near 600KB/sec. That’s kilobytes, not bits. Sometimes I watch it and think, “That’s over 3 Apple // floppy disks a second….”
Welcome to the real broadband.
Congratulations. You’ve just installed a crack pipeline straight into your office. Just remember, food and hygiene, at least a few times a day.
I was curious if you ever considered changing the
layout oof your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
goot to say. But maybe you could a little mokre in the
way of content soo people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
2 images. Maybe you could pace it out better?
