The Dial-Up Line

Because of a project I’m working on with a friend I’m trying out the 56k modem in my Mac for the first time and I’m honestly surprised. Somehow I’ve got a reasonably fast connection. In fact, I almost think it’s faster than my PC which has a 100mbps connection (it’s got some issues if you can’t tell).

So long as you weren’t uploading large photos, downloading music or playing games online, you could totally work from this connection.

I was also really surprised with the ease I was able to connect. Fill out 4 fields (name, password, primary number, secondary number) then click Connect and you’re online. No fess, no mess, no having to set up crap. It’s awesome. This is really cool.
