Still on freakin dial up? And if so, then why is it sooooooooo slow!?!?!?!:mad
I'm on broadband. Dialup is slow because of the way it communicates with the server. The data travel rate is 56k (Kilobits, 1000 bits) which equals to 7kb (Kilo Bytes, 1000 Bytes) You download 7 kilobytes every second. This page is 12.5KB which means it takes just over a second to load the page, not includng images. The logo itself is 28kb, which adds another 4 seconds to loading if you do not have it cached. (Cache means it's saved to your hard drive after visiting, to make loads faster.)
My parents house has dial-up, I hate going home from college for that reason...
I live in the sticks and can only hook up at about 26.4. That really sucks.
Okay, I'm not bitching anymore
I know some people who use smoke signals to connect to the internet. Now, that's slow.. :lol
ur not the only 1. to cheap to get anything better since im in college
