Bye Bye Dial-Up!

Tonight is the end of an era (sort of) as I bid a fond but not unwelcome farewell to my 56k Dial Up connection. If all goes well, by this time tomorrow, I’ll be able to zoom around the internet at a speed of 2mb (if the blurb is to believed…it will probably be nearer to 56k granted the ever spiralling contention ratio…) and really enjoy the treasures the internet has to offer.

I decided to pre-plan the switch by downloading the wondrous Google Earth Application. If you’ve got it, you’ll know exactly where I’m coming from and if you haven’t, do yourself a favour and download it from here – and forget about spending the evening doing the housework ‘cos you’ll be hooked.

So, goodbye Dial Up. I think my internet experience is about to get a whole lot more interesting (and Google Earth will run much faster too).

Hi there! You don't know me, but I read your blog, which I found on Racheal's page. I'd like to ask you a favor. Actually, it's more of your opinion considering you are a teacher. I have a 6 year old daughter, who is having a very hard time learning how to read. Do you know of any online reading games I could have her play? Or educational web sites? Oe even any suggestions? She's getting so discouraged and I want to do everything I can to assist her. Thanks so much. (I've asked a few teachers at her school, and none of them know much about computers)

As always... Rachael said...

Congrats on the high-speed switch! Now you can waste time more efficiently!
