We FINALLY got high speed internet!

Oh, it is nice. When I click on a photo link, I can see it without waiting 30 min! I can watch VIDEO.

It's even wireless!!

Now I don't have to do all my internet surfing at work : where we actually have decent internet access.

So THIS is what the 21st century is like. Huh. No robot maids, but it's pretty cool just the same.

I uploaded some photos and it took 1.5 min, rather than 3 hours! It's AWESOME.

I know. It's so sad. You have NO idea how excited I am! My dh just keeps laughing at me 'cause I keep clicking on pictures in links (here at MDC) and uploading stuff and watching vids.

These are things I will do on the sly at work, but now I can actually WORK at work and goof-off at home.....wait, is that a good idea?

I was the same way when I got mine. I had a nice download manager and when I had dial-up, I took pride in the stubbornness it takes to wait a WEEK to download a Linux distro or a full length film, but I like it much better now. I also spend far less time on the internet now that everything doesn't take forever and have more time for offline activities, which is the best part of all.

See? It's better, because you spend LESS time on the computer because things load faster, vs more time on the computer looking at more stuff (which, yah, you will - but you'll see more FASTER!). See, it's efficient!
