As the title says, its time to get flamed!

Why do people write 56k or not 56k freindly or 56k this or 56k that in thier titles?

Just curios.

It means that people on Dial Up Internet will have a hard time viewing posts with Large/many Images.

hmm, I think it's time to start colouring my hair, I think for every noob born in the 90s I get 10 grey hairs. think of it! They have never had dialup, or if they did, they were to young to remember it!

I have 6 channels now I miss rotary telephones actually...there was something soothing to the tack tack tack noise as it dialed. but hell if you messed up the number

As for phonebooths, I had my works only remaining public phone booth removed because the only people using them were the drug dealers and the prosties.

Oh Dialup, I used to play the game Outlaws on the MSN gaming zone all the time on it and would get so angry when someone used the phone. And I'm a '91 kid
