Cable at home. DSL at work. They're about the same quality as far as I can tell

Nah, something that crass and annoying has to keep the 'America' title :P

j/k I think it has more to do with name recognition and company name issues

Um yes they still call it AOL :P
However I wouldn't use it.

I use Cogeco as my ISP. And I use Firefox as my main Internet Browser.

Cable. My father is a computer programmer, so we always have the very latest in computer junk. (A homebuilt computer, for one thing.) I remember being at my friend's house and using her dial-up so we could play some internet game. I definetely like cable better.

YEs if you have ever tried to surf through the many pages of TU with dial up you have to be a fan of the place. I have had both Cable and dial up at the same time and could see back to back. When all I had was dial up I thought it was ok. I only went to using Cable when I put my website together. Loading up 900 + photos and moving them around all the time needed Cable.

I have DSL
"Pain is for the living. Only the dead don't feel it. Pain is a part of life. Sometimes it's a big part, and sometimes it isn't, but either way, it's part of the big puzzle, the deep music, the great game. Pain does two things: It teaches you, tells you that you're alive. Then it passes away and leaves you changed. It leaves you wiser, sometimes. Sometimes it leaves you stronger. Either way, pain leaves its mark, and everything important that will ever happen to you in life is going to involve it in one degree or another."

You know now that you put it that way, Your right it is I don't know wither it shows commitment or shows that I should be committed. My wife says that it shows commitment and that is why she says she can trust me. But I agree with you I'm just crazy. Oh I got 3 more things to put up just yesterday. :D Yes to do that site I had to go to Cable to do other wise would have taken months to get started.
