Dial-up is slow

While visiting Carole here in Georgia for the New Year’s holiday, I only have access to the Internet through a dial-up connection, and boy am I reminded of how thankful I am for my connection through Comcast. Dial-up access is agonizingly slow! It helps me understand why Carole is less enthusiastic about accessing the Internet than I am, even taking into account the differences in our level of experience with being online. The occasional problems she may experience caused by clicking on the wrong link are far more difficult to recover from than they would be if she had any kind of reasonable broadband connection. As they say, “you don’t appreciate the water until the well runs dry.”
