i wish i had as good performance,at first i got about 4k/s but now
everything is about 200-600bytes! at times i get about 2.1k/s though
but i keep getting disconnected,i cant always connect and sometimes i get
a dialtone through my modem instead of a carrier.
but then my phone line has been crackling alot recently (it didnt before
the box was fitted).
I needed the good will of the legislature of four states. I formed the
legislative bodies with my own money. I found that it was cheaper that way.
