Dial up internet

Category: web

I realise now how Internet Explorer reigns supreme still even without tabs for the majority of the population of various countries that don’t have broadband: using tabs on dial up is just frustration. Even in the basic HTML view of GMail in my two tabs (my normal GMail and my Joomla one) are timing out and dropping connections. If I’m lucky I’ll get the email I wanted to read. If I’m not lucky I’ll get either a white screen or Firefox’s “Data Transfer Interrupted”. My WordPress blog doesn’t seem to be impacted that detrimentally, perhaps because I have already loaded Turbo on it earlier so downloading all of WP’s crap is actually local (yay!) and getting to the page is relatively easy. Which leads me to post this whilst I watch spinning loading symbols spin almost endlessly. Yay for dialup!
