    Even now you're still in the Matrix with almost 100x internet and processing speeds.
    56Kbps is the speed I get once I exhaust my data limit.

    Anyone have a pair of phone lines and use the old "shotgun" approach with a Diamond modem? I had a friend who did that. He was getting 112K! :eek:

    "Microsoft starting last-minute push to get Windows users to upgrade to IE1"

    - IE10 will soon exit support, leaving many Windows users without any security or non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content.

    - Microsoft is giving Windows users a last chance to upgrade to IE11

    "Wow, fancy that. Web ad giant Google to block ad-blockers in Chrome. For safety, apparently"
    How many ad blocks could an ad slinger block if an ad slinger could block blocks?

    - Google engineers have proposed changes to the open-source Chromium browser that will break content-blocking extensions, including ad blockers.

    - The drafted changes will limit the capabilities available to extension developers, ostensibly for the sake of speed and safety.

    - Raymond Hill, the developer behind uBlock Origin and uMatrix, said the changes contemplated by the Manifest v3 proposal will ruin his ad and content blocking extensions, and take control of content away from users.

    Yeah. This is why I'm glad I've moved back to Firefox. Google will lose users to this but it won't matter to them.

    IE 11? Hmmm. Let's see, I haven't used IE since version . . . . . . one?? I think I even paid for Netscape before evil Microsoft started giving their browser away for free lol.
