Hey I grew up with 56k modems. I have been conditioned to find blurrier sexier. Besides, higher resolution is not always better. At some point it just becomes gyneocology.

Rangor said:bandwidth limit? what's that?Something people from New Zealand have had to put up with for longer than I care to admit and will continue having to put up with for a long time to come, unless we pay an arm and a leg for 'unlimited' - most places I know of charge $100+ per month for it, plus depending on the ISP they usually have a Acceptable Use Policy (so if you go over a set amount on a regular basis they still reserve the right to throttle your speed back or push you onto a different plan) or they "shape" internet traffic, so that P2P traffic gets slower speeds or lower priority.Examples of some of the prices charged here:ADSL2+ with 30gb data cap (Orcon Internet): $75 a monthADSL2 with 30gb data cap (Slingshot internet): $81 a monthADSL with 40gb data cap (Telecom Xtra): $75 a month
@Sarapis I know that feeling somewhat. Calls to even local numbers have never been free here so every moment on the Web costs us. To make matters even more fun, there was no local ISP so the nearest one to call was a national long distance number. Our phone bill went up 8-fold, my father wanted to kill me and I only survived cause I downloaded interesting agriculture articles for him."That article not done yet?!""No dad, it is about 40% done!" *waits patiently for Usenet porn downloading*"It was 60% 20 minutes ago!" "Um....the line got disconnected!" *watches door with mouse hovering over "X"
