To some extent. You and I have ADSL - but a huge proportion
of the world are still relying on good old dial up and will
be for some years to come.

Nor do I. But I have customers who *do*.

You filling your HD's like I am huh? Hardest thing in my life is
sorting out the stuff I don't need. <g> I have a 32 gig drive
just for backups of tools I use sometimes.

True. But we still can't lose sight of the fact that the
majority of the world isn't in our position. ADSL in
Australia is *still* relatively expensive and most plans
have a maximum number of megs (or gigs) you can pull down
a month. I'm on an 8 gig plan. Some people have plans
as low as 500 meg a month. It's getting cheaper - but
slowly and our major Telco has a monopoly on the exchanges.
