Coming into this century!

We finally did it.

We went from dial-up to high-speed internet. And what a difference!

I know. I know. I should have done it months, if not several years ago, but I'm slow to change when it comes to technology. Hubby finally convinced me to say yes and he had it switched before I could change my mind. LOL

Now, I'm able to watch videos and book trailers, where before it was impossible. And I'm not even going to talk about how fast pages load. Amazing! I figure I'll chop about 6 hours off my work week in just answering emails and checking out my yahoo groups.

So far, so good. I'm enjoying the change.

Congrats, NJ. It's like going to the laundramat to wash clothese vs having your own machine at home. Once you have it at your fingertips, there is no going back.

Now that is something you wouldn't have to twist my arm to buy, Cathy.

I live in an apartment building on the third floor and the laundry room is in the basement. I long for the day when I have my own washer and dryer. Talk about saving time!

Oh, geez, NJ, you'll save more time than that! On dial-up, it takes half an hour just to download email. Good for you!

I'm a recent convert, too, NJ. We switched over a few months ago and it is so much quicker. Have fun!

I tried switching from dial-up to DSL and it wound up crashing my system. I just don't have a computer that can handle the hook-ups. I'll switch down the line when I get a new computer, but for now and considering what I do online, I'm content.

It's amazing how much faster just doing the mail is, Charli.

It is fun, Shelley. No more waiting five or six minutes for a blog with heavy graphics to load.

Dial-up works just fine, Kathy, especially if your system is older. As long as you're on-line, that's all that matters. :-)

You're going to be addicted now and there's no turning back. :D
