I own a 56K modem, but for the last few months my connection has been wiggin' out. It's supposed to connect at 45,333bps, but it's been dropping steadily. Now, the highest it'll go is 7,200bps, no matter how many times I try. I finally broke down and ordered a cable modem, but it won't be installed until Friday, May 5th, so it looks like I won't be downloading much of anything for quite a while. I don't know how much longer I can last! /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If the past is an idea that can only occur in the here-and-now, and the future is also just a concept happening strictly in the present, is there really a past and future? Or just a continuum of present moments?

Is it possible to get a cable modem with a satellite dish? Probably not, but I was hoping it was possible.

cable modem with a Sat connection... that would be a very long cable I think... about 36000km!!!! lol /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif

But I know that some sat providers also provide internet connections.

You think you've got it bad. My ISP was taken over by World On Line and now my average ping of 280 has dropped to 2,600. UT is now unplayable. Grrrrr
