At home we have cable (though I'm on the wireless side of it)... I'm at school, and it's either wireless of some sort, or I think either DSL or an Ethernet line, though knowing me, those are the same thing. Either way, it's fast?

I have dial-up, it's sad but true. I hate it with a passion but it allows me to get online.

We've got DSL and Ethernet here, but we might as well have Dial-Up, 'cause the DSL hates me, (no joking, it really will go to extreme lengths just to not work for me,) and anytime it rains the DSL usually cuts out, and whenever someone picks up the phone it cuts out, anyway! :( :smt095 :smt095 :smt095 :smt095 :smt074 :smt074 :smt074 :smt074 :smt077 :smt077 :smt077 :smt077

Cable here!
Always looking for a good book to read.

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
