So far the site was often rather slow in the mornings, but ok at night (no idea why, could also be due to something else entirely). But in any case its fine this morning - I spent a long time here today, just to make sure...

This is a serious, non-nationalistic post.
So you're still on dial-up? Strewth, I thought Australia was supposed to be the pits re internet service. I guess I'm lucky, in that we live in the scrub, but our Provider has a relay maybe two miles (I defer to Imperial, dmun) away. Still pretty RS, but better than the earlier setup.
Don't ask me about speeds, eh: ever the Luddite.
well actually for Christmas I have spun up. My dial up was $10 a month and being the frugal engineer that I am I could not justify $14 or more a month for "fast" service. By the way from what I can tell even our fast service is slow compared to european countries. Well the wife ws getting tired of waiting and using the accelerator which loads up a degraded image rather than the full image of pictures and said get more speed. For what i do in the net at home I really don't see that much of a difference. Oh yeah maybe it is due to using a PC that is 7 years old - at least I got rid of Windows ME.
