It could even be November 2010!

But everyone knows the internet dies then so it won't matter. :roll:

Don´t laugh at that , when i worked in a computer shop, a customer wanted to buy internet (and not, he wasn't Bill Gates).
We told him that he wanted to buy a way to access internet and he told us that he wanted to buy the internet and if that would be very expensive. :shock:

We tried to explain him , but he went from the shop with the idea that we wanted to cheat him.

I believe in the last few months a certain technology minister claimed to have downloaded the internet onto his office PC. ;) (Sadly I can no longer find the article relating to this)

I've been living there since then , and though now i don´t work there it seems impossible for me to return from the land of confusion. When i read some of those lists about crazy things that computer users said or done i believe them cause i have lived some of them. I've seen (and heard) things, you people wouldn't believe ... :wink:

Patience is what you need. If you had bothered to read around on the forums you would know that there have been problems with porting the code. Rest assured it will come.

Actually, I believe in the movie, his 'setup' was capable of 1200bps. The 300bps coupler was only a prop.
