I'm better than 3/4s of the way there. What most folks don't realize is that your computer processor speed, cache, ram plus other stuff in your system will control how much you can take advantage of that. :)

Great visual analogy! Nice find Sidd! This past week our internet connection was hitting slow speeds that reminded me of dial-up. Once you get used to the faster speeds it is hard to imagine the old days.

For almost a decade - before cable came to our neck of the woods - my internet speed was all of 12 kbps. :pull:
