Since so many of us spend a lot of time online, especially now that we found "Arubas Isle of Revenge" you may want to read Time magazine's Nov. 16th issue, page 76, "No Waiting on the Web". The article is about the growth of broadband access to the internet and makes some very good comparisons:

Time it takes to download the Encclopaedia Britanica

56 K modem 27 hours 50 min.
Satellite 3 hours 40 min.
DSL 1 hour
Cable 30 min.

They didn't even mention modems less than 56K either.

Keep Foolish and prosper,

TMF Spirit
