You're giving me flashbacks to trying to download all that crap over a
modem line. Stop that! (GRIN)
(And it drove me to go figure out how to order BRI-ISDN to my condo,
which was a couple of months long story in and of itself... then early
SDSL -- CopperMountain CopperRocket "modem", I do remember that part --
from whoever that provider was that only did SDSL, then later we moved,
and I was in Qwest coverage for ADSL... and now Comcast on a commercial
12Mb down/2 Mb up sure beats the old modem.
During the ISDN days, it was 64Kb/s plus "bonding" if the Zyxel ISDN
device decided that I was filling the 64K pipe for more than a couple of
Then it would bond the other 64K in, and if someone called on the phone,
