The place we rented at the beach advertises that it has high-speed Internet access. These days this term “high-speed” Internet is used to mean anything faster then a dial-up line. They even say in their documentation that it is up to 50 times as fast as a 56k dial-up line. So I guess a dial-up line is the base unit for measurement of Internet access these days.
At home I have cable modem access to the Internet. I was a little surprised to find that the access here at the beach was not wireless, but an ethernet plug in each condo. The access speed seems to be a little less the DSL speed, but yes it is faster then dial-up.
The weather has been mixed so far this week. But I’m setting here viewing the ocean with the sound of waves crashing in to the shore and the smell of salt air. Totally relaxing.
I ran my feed reader for the first time since last week and it came up with over 2000 new feeds. I’m just going to reset it and start over.
