10 Ways You Know Your Internet Connection Is A Little Slow

Standard

Melody, I got this email today and immediately thought of you … let us know if any of these have happened to you 🙂 🙂

You know your Internet connection is a “little” slow when

1. Text on Web pages displays as Morse Code

2. Graphics arrive via FedEx

3. You believe a heavier string might improve your connection

4. You post a message to your favorite newsgroup and it displays a week later

5. Your credit card expires while ordering online

6. ESPN Web site exhibits “Heisman Trophy Winner” …for 1989

7. You’re still in the middle of downloading that popular new game, “PacMan”

8. Everyone you talk to on the ‘net phone’ sounds like Forrest Gump

9. You receive e-mails with stamps on them

10. When you click the “Send” button, a little door opens on the side of your monitor and a pigeon flies out.

Thank God for DSL!!!

  1. To a Tee! Sometime is like every time mi click pon a site, mi haffe wait fe Bill Gates jump pon him buggy & deliver a telegram to de host B4 mi can get let een. LOL. Shall let go o’ de dial-up since it costs so much more than de alternative — but only when de subscription is up — can U tell: am so averse 2 tech changes. Luv de link, CD — & de credit card part sound like it mighta really did happen!!

  2. hehe. lol@melody. Piggy, I can’t believe that in this day and age of technology yu still have dial-up. Good Lord!!! Yeahman, ADSL is the way to go. And after that, get a wireless router and get rid o’ the darn cables.

  3. Doan feel no way yah Melody .. me very low tech too. Is work give me di laptop, di wireless card [that roams!] and all dem tings. If it wasn’t for dat I would only use the desktop in my office that I visit twice per month! And blogging would be writing in one of those books with the lil lock and key .. THOSE were the days! *sigh*

  4. Spice, it’s so funny you mention the books with the lock and key. I still have a manual journal which I started in 1989 and that I still write in today … not everyday but when there is a major event in my life. I’ve been blessed with a great memory so when I write my book, I will be able to fill in the gaps.
