Okay. So I'm using the crappy computer in my room instead of the good one downstairs because my little brother wants to
"PWAY DA SIMS!!!!!!!111111ONEFUCKINGONE"
I haven't used dial up in ages, since All of the other computers I use regularly have DSL, so I know I'm gonna have to be patient. here's a table of the different amounts of time it takes to eaven get to my fucking homepage:

Boot up to the point where it askes you if you want to boot windows or DOS (this computer is ancient): 10:00 min. Approx

Boot from O/S Selection to Screename selection: 15:00 Min Approx

Boot to the point where it stops making loading sounds 5 min

Time to open the dialer for internet: 4 min

Dialing (on average I have to try 3 times before I'm on): 4 min

Loading homepage: 10 min(approx)

total: 48 FUCKING MINUTES!!!!!!!!! That's just sad. anyone have an as bad or worse time getting on?

Maybe you could call up the local cable company and tell them you want cable internet. And get a new computer that would save alot of time. ;)

Actually, I have dsl downstairs. Unfortunately, I live with retards that unplug the DSL at night and turn the monitor to the wall so it can't spy on us.

This computer used to be my dad's old "work" computer, so I'm sure I have at least 10 viruses from all the porn sites he went to ;) . BUT, there is a plus! Free image software and good video card! (although by today's standards they Suck)
