Default High Speed Vs Dialup

Call this a poll based on curiousity.

We all know pictures can say a 1000 words, but we folks who use DSL, T1 or Cable, sometimes forget about others on dial-up. Its only fair that we take that into consideration. We have an unwritten rule that states our images in the signatures shall not exceed 35kb. But as we grow, images are inevitable and it can get cumbersome for dial up people.

Please add to the poll and comment away.....

Once you get high-speed, you will never want to go back to dial-up. It'* like a microwave oven.

lol thats very true....ive had cable for about 5-6 months now and when i use somebody else'* computer, i just dont have the patience to sit there and wait.
i feel for the dial-up users. even with a top notch comp, DL'ing takes forever.

Good idea about this post 89Bonne, maybe more people will realize just how long things take for the dial up guys (or girls:P)

Anyone still on Dial-up deserves the torture of having wait. Get with the times!

And don't tell me it'* not available in your area, it'* called satellite.
