    Talking OMG! I should of done this a long time ago!

    I finally got rid of dial up! High speed internet is totally amazing! I don't get kicked off anymore and it zooms like crazy. Instead of it taking 4 hours to download something it takes 2 seconds! OMG. Now I am a download freak. I had so many problems before, but I am so pleased that I can finally download some of the great work on here. I was so disappointed last week when I couldn't do the challenge.. I really don't care about the prize as much as doing the challenge. But what a challenge it was to do the challenge, I never got to do it! But now I am back with speed!!!!
    Thanks to all of you who have been working on the templates and embellishments You all are so creative!
    And a special thanks to Eye, for trying to help me when I just didn't know where to turn anymore. I really appreciate it.
    And to Scrapbook Max A big thank you also! It was not a problem with your program it was the dial up that would kick me off and I would loss everything!
    Well I guess I am done rambling. Have a great day ya'll! and Happy Scrappin'!

    High speed Internet is the ONLY way to "fly"......

    Now's a good time to go out and rent "Speed", "Hackers", "The Net", "Antitrust", "Swordfish" and any other movie wiith high-speed access.

    All I've have when I got to my condo is dial-up and it's SO painful to watch... Good for testing my webpages though... Optimize those images!

    I must admit I am still using my windows 98 with dial up, I know it's about time I retired it, but I have had such a great run on here,I have downloaded some huge kits,yes it takes me hours but I am fortunate now not to get kicked off as I did many years ago, my ISP has improved on that immensely,also I dont have the expense to worry if I download huge kits & go over my quota as I am on unlimited & never have to pay any extra, whereas I know if you go over on broadband you might have to pay the extra.(not sure if all have to do that though).
    Anyway, I know one day I will be forced to pack this up & start using my Xp,& go onto broadband, but until then I am a creature of habit & dont beleive in fixing something that isn't broken & will plod on & enjoy the unlimited advantages, & put up with all the hours it takes to get them
    Enjoy your broadband,one day I will join you all

    Kazr, honey.... We forgive you! I struggled for a long time with dial up, and is not sin. But girl, there is nothing like cable. Of course, I need it for work, so I can justify the expense. In fact, I told my husband....

    If we stop feeding the dogs and the cat, stop paying the rent, throw away the car, use candles instead of electricity, use a rope and two cans for communicating instead of phone, get a library car instead of bying books, save cans, learn to live without eating, don't do laundry (who needs clean clothes anyhow), and just really tighten our belts, I can have cable. Well, we did and we do, and it's working out wonderfully.

    So, don't worry, you'll day will come!!
