But, you shall be missed on your hiatus anyhow, certainly not for this reason though, heh.

If not, then it's mid-August. I hate modems.

but you love OSY even more
True, but my loathing of modems is quite powerful. And I can survive without OSY. I think.

That, and I think you're exaggerating your modemular angst. I surf from home on a 26.4kbs connection shared amonst several boxes. Just remember: it could be worse.

I think I'd go cuckoo if I had to do that. Remember, I've been on a T1 in this dorm, and a T3 in the general university common. Modem = suck. Broadband = win.
And if I get a text-based browser it won't even bother with colored backgrounds, thus saving even more time.

While I do like surfing on the DSL line at work, I'm not suffering too badly when I'm on 56k dialup at home. I'm not downloading ISO images while at home, but you'd be surprised how much web browsing can be done on these lowly modems. ;)

Yeah, that's not fucking annoying. Postwhoring is all fine and good, but rampant front page clearing chaps my ass. I hate hate hate going and looking for updated topics to reply in. It's rather a PITA.
I agree, but in the spirit of OSY, I've gone ahead and started searching for the good topics to bump to the front again, so we can all get back to whatever it is that passes for normal around here.
