Well, all of this is still faster than the dialup I had back in 2003. Honestly, dialup isn't nearly as bad as it may seem - though I suppose there are certain things that'd just be horrendous to download, these days. For most browsing, it just takes a different kind of thinking to get you through. If you're the type that uses tabbed browsing, it's just a matter of making sure that you're juggling several tabs at once - for me, I spent more time reading than loading new pages, and that helped me out alot.

(Of course, I had to use Internet Explorer back then, but even so, I had multiple browser windwows open at once)

Hehe, I remember back in -96 when I had 28.8k modem and played diablo 1 all night long.
Surfing on pr0n sites were a bit challenging too 8-)

Damn those bills were huge Tongue
Got a lot cheaper in -99 when I got 0.5/0.5 Mbit "broadband" =)

Hey, I surfed astronomy sites all the time, and they had "high-resolution" photographs, too! Wink

*AND* I streamed audio feeds from a really neat radio station out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Too bad they switched genre - went from classical/jazz to oldies?!?!? Sad
