    Last Year I got me full Blown 6 pack Abs. :D
    That really went well looking at the fact I am still full blown without abs. :p

    Oh Well. So this Year, I'll keep it simple.

    Me gonna get rid of this 7.2 Mb/s Broadband USB modem ( which is snail speed now ) to a10 Mb/s one.

    Thinking of switching ISP.

    Let's see how this goes. Eh !

    Hello,

    I have a 20 Mb down and 1 Mb up ADSL2 line for the internet.
    If I want I can switch to a 40 Mb down ADSL2+ line for 10 euro a month more.

    Lucky You...
    If I were to get that kinda speed, I'll have to sell an arm and a leg.

    10 euro is like 300 MVR for us. Did you know that a 10mbs Business package cost 1500 MVR with a usage limit of around just 10 gigs or so.

    You go girl!

    I got appx 16mb down and 0.8mb up. This is because I live on the countryside... :rolleyes: A guy at work has 60Mb down and 20mb up. I've helped him putting together a server. Now I can see movies from his pc. :D

    Hello,

    To be honest, I hardly use the spellcheck utility.
    I noticed that a lot of common words are missing.
    Or it is highlighting them without any options.

    Try to live until next new years.

    Stop smoking, for one.

    I already have fiber coming to the house for internet, which is a bit of overkill (40MB up/down).

    I've said that every year.

    I don't even bother trying anymore, until I really want to. Without that drive, it's impossible.

    I'm very jelly
    I have 3Mb down, .6Mb up, and mines faster than almost all of my friends (I also live in the middle of nowhere)

    My resolution is to have as much fun as possible :D

    Yeah, and build a honkin huge Tesla Coil so you can scare your neighbors a mile away! Just like Tesla himself. Could you imagine living next to that guy during his high voltage experiments!

    I'm paying for 3 Mb/s DSL, and I'm only getting about 1 Mb/s. Magnet, I'm willing to bet I'm more in the middle of nowhere than you are! :D I'm buried deep in the foothills of the Green Mountains, nothing but trees as far as the eye can see (which isn't too far because there are so many trees :p). I've got the worst ISP ever, but I guess it's better than the dial-up I used to have.

    My new years resolution is probably to get off the computer for a while and get out more. I need to meet some more people and give my poor laptop a rest :p

    Going to be an interesting year. I have nothing but high hopes for it! :D

    Happy New Year, fellas!
