I was online just long enough for Karl to message me with something weird before I lost the aim connection. That was an hour ago.
Since then I've been attempting to get a connection with actual FLOW OF DATA instead of it just sitting there, claiming it's connected, but not actually passing any info to me.
A connection is sort of pointless if you can't download a website, connect to a mail server or well... use it at all for anything.
I dunno.. maybe dropping the money on a cable connection *is* a good idea... but that's going to take another month of saving.
