In February of 1997 I bought a 33.6 Global Village external modem and had Earthlink as my ISP. It was connected to a Power Computing Power Tower Pro 200MHZ 604e. I still regret giving that beast to my brother in law after I upgraded to a Powermac G4. Even at 33.6 I had a wall mount tv above the computer so I could watch tv while I waited for downloads.

It's poor form to use a referral link that will personally benefit you in this sort of context. It diminishes your point, making you look like any other spammer or paid shill.

Despite using a referral url, I will back them up in that Dwolla is much better for this. Also it can be set to auto deposit each transaction into your account as payments come in.

Don't hit the keys so hard, it hurts.
