    im not going to sleep at all over spring break i think. most people wouldnt sleep because they are too busy getting wasted and having sex, but me.... ill be using my cable internet : and im going to do some heavy counter-strike'in you better believe it, i will finally be one of the low-ping bastards. paying 39.99 a month for it, which is alot better because i used to be paying $40 a month for dialup for the monthly charge and the 2nd phone line bill so instead of $40 a month for 2kbps, im getting probably 300kbps. i talked to my neighbors that got it too, and their highest was like 800kbps and 2-300 is their average.

    I was stoked when I got my 128Kbps connection, and now I'm so jealous, I like getting 15KBps, but 200-300 would be much nicer. I remember the brief period of time I had free cable, don't ask, don't tell, and was downloading at those speeds, and now everything else seems slow.

    I'll trade you my T-3. Wait... No I won't. But I'll probably be forced to go back to 28k in the summer. It should be a crime for the telephone companies not to offer DSL.

    Actually, I thought the other way. I have dealt with DSL installs off and on for the past few years, and the telcos just cause pain.

    "Yes we can install it. Setup fee of $74.99 is waived if you sign up for a 2 year contract and prepay the frist 3 months. We will have it installed within 3 weeks."

    Translation : "let us take your money away from you. you dont need it

    6 weeks later ...

    "We are having difficulties installing the facilities. Please bear with us"

    Translation : "Ahh ... interest, not having to pay more than 10 techs ... Aint business great!"

    another 6 weeks later ...

    "Sorry but we cannot install ADSL or SDSL at your location. Your refund is in the mail."

    Translation : "Well, thanks for the better than free business loan! Piss off now, we have people to rip off."
