  • Speed Test II (This is for YOU dweekie!)....

    Yeah.... I know it's still slow compared to all of you cable users out there with the super duper powerbooster thingie.... but I HATE Comcast and will never give them another dime of my money. But, hey.... I've moved out of the cave, booted AOL to the curb :woo: and am FINALLY entering the 20th century of internet surfing. You all KNOW how long I clung to the old technology, so I'm not sure how fast it will take to arrive in the 21st century, but hey, cut the quadman some slack. At least I won't need to post everything a day in advance just so that it appears that I'm actually participating in the conversation. :dizzy:

    So, without further adieu.... (or was it ado? :scratchchin:)



    :clapper:

    Oh yeah.... and dweekie.....

      LOL.... sorry Jack my friend. But AOL screwed up for the last time when something they had me do to my computer wiped out my ability to get on to the internet. Even through plain old IE.... something in the connectivity file of IE was wipped and didn't re-install correctly so I was SOL.

      When I went to BB to pick up a new AOL CD to re-install AOL on the computer, no luck. When I called them they were like.... no we don't send out the free versions to the stores anymore. And, I'm like WTF do I do?!? Their answer was to "WAIT" on a new CD to be mailed to me.

      I told 'em thanks but no thanks.... I'm DONE. :applause:

      I still like ya though Jack.... :yes:

            John,

            I still have like 4 AOL discs, but I haven't needed to reload AOL for a long time. But I mostly use AOL dialer and go to Firefox.

                        Actually, AOL finally made the decision for me. Their cavilier attitude about the problem THEIR tech caused, my inability to get on line because of it and the laisse-fair "you'll just have to wait for us to mail you a new AOL CD".... finally did it. They just didn't seem to care. Which I sure didn't understand after being a long time customer (9 years). :scratchchin:

                          Congrats John!

                          We are at this speed and I still run out of bandwidth. My provider offers up to 1000Mb/s but I shudder to think of the cost...

                            Thanks Ninja-san.... I REALLY have enjoyed the DSL so far. Even though it's at a snail's pace compared to what you and others have, it's lightening quick compared to my old dial up. I actually watched a movie on line the other night. It wasn't all that great as far as clarity (hell, most likely the integrated video driver rather than a dedicated card), but it wasn't all that bad either. I was just enjoying the chance to do so.

                            I'm still a bit lost using IE as opposed to the integrated IE in AOL. I've lost some of the flexibility that I had (maybe it's there, I just haven't learned it yet) and things like the way I had bookmarks and favorites organized. I know I can do it in IE too, and I have to a small degree, but I'm just not as comfortable with it yet I guess.

                            I hope all is well with you and the Mrs my friend....

                              Hang in there John. IE doesn't provide all that AOL did under one umbrella, but much of AOL's functionality is still available to you. AOL dialup was access to the internet AND a browser. But, with broadband, you are always connected to the internet. IE (or Frrefox, etc.) only handles the browsing. Want instant news? Put an icon on your desktop for Google news, or CNN, or whatever. I have icons for TCA, AVS, other forums, and other web sites I frequent, right on my destop. All I need do is click on one and IE opens to that particular web site.
