I can’t remember when we last had a decent internet connection. For months, I’ve been rebooting our modem several times a day. Then there was that week the cables, outside our condo building, fell to the ground. After that was fixed, we thought – for a day – that things were better. And then…we slowed down to a total crawl. And the rebooting the modem issue became worse.
We’re two rather peaceful laid back people so…we’ve lived like this. I’m thinking since at least last November. We’re not in a hurry to get anywhere on the internet. It was just frustrating as hell. So…
Yesterday we were set up with some closer fiber optic VDSL something and before we had something called ADSL. And we went from 3 somethings to 18 somethings. And no, I don’t know what I’m talking about. I only know that our internet is so faster and our new modem is working.
You and I met and had a lovely courtship using dial-up internet connections. We somehow managed to connect and chat enough times to decide to meet in person and eventually marry.
Our grandparents used to tell us how they walked miles to school everyday. We’ll be telling our grand kids that it used to take us forever to connect to the internet so stop complaining about having to wait 2 seconds 😛
So yay for advancing technology.
