How did I ever do as much as I do now on dialup?

It boggles the mind.

I love you, high speed. Truly and dearly.

It makes my skin crawl to even think about dial-up. How you held out so long... there's just no words. You were an oak, the last vestige of an ancient way of life. ;)

Well, I had no choice. No high speed options until I moved. :(
