The reason I got the internet was to play an old MMORPG called Legend of Mir.. that was when I was 13, but still didn't get any lag

Lol I remember the days of AOL and the dreaded 28.8k modem dial up! later on went to 56k modem and around high school got cable. Went from 2mbit, 5mbit, 7mbit now I have 15-22mibt :)

I remembered when downloading anime eps I had to queue up a lot before I went to sleep lol... those were the days. Nowdays I can download 4.5gigs in a matter of 20mins... But you know in the future we'll have faster connections, heck did you know that the US is like #14th in broadband connection. Next thing you know our phones will be capable of these speeds. Heck I watch tv on my phone.. whats next? lol

Oh god... aol dial-up... Bad.Times. You'd have to sit there forever listening to that noise, (as if the computer was having some sort of seizure) ... and pages would load so slowly. Plus you were only allowed to go on it for about 30 minutes because the mother was expecting a call. D:

Praise thy broadband.
