First, let me vent about my first morning of dial up, then we can get to the humor.

I will spare you the usual complaint about how fucking slow dial up is. I know we get DSL, Cable, a T1 or better, and we forget how it was in the modem age. My complaint is with how Windows handles modems.

You know, I had linux on a laptop at one point, and dial up was a breeze. Not so, with Windows. I bring up a web browser, and it asks my if I would like to dial. Sure... So, I'm online. Then I try to check e-mail, and it tries to open a new dialer, fucking up the first connection, and neither work. WTF? Shouldn't dialing be managed by your TCP driver? Not the individual apps?

What a pain in the ass!!!!!

Other than that, and the dog waking me at 3am and again at 6am, all is good here.
