Whats dial up.
I still have to crank the handle on the side of the box and ask the operator for a connection.

ROFL

Hhahahahahhaha! And shoot ground hogs from yer back porch too! What a Great Life! Reminds me of Green Acers. I have to climb the pole to make my connection hahahahahha!

Yes Nod

Correction Green Acres of course! And who don't remember that show?

    I use dial-up because I'm a Slowski. No need to drive a hundred miles an hour into a tree when you can do it at fifty.

    I use dialup.  Call me an old fashioned kind of gal.  I often wonder why I bought a new laptop that I couldn't afford when my HP 8250 desktop was purring like a kitten.  Social pressure I guess!!

      Two thumbs up for The Slowskis Smiley

      For those unfamiliar with The Slowskis, they are a couple of turtles on a current series of Comcast Broadband commercials. They do not like the high speed of broadband internet because it is just too fast for them to understand and it makes them nervous.

      My Maltese loves to bark at those commercials when they come on the tv.

      The Slowskis have risen slowly but surely to favorite status, just surpassing the Geico Gecko (although it is a close race at the moment)...

        and they're off.  The gecko is beating the turtle by a hare. Big Grin

        Since you live in Florida, I don't have to tell you that those little lizzards are much faster than turtles. I have a heck of a time catching them in my house.  I'm putting my money on the Maltese.
