Nice. I'd like to leave DSL, not so much because it's slow, but because it's unreliable.

Update:
After some emails with the "Director of Customer Satisfaction" at Razer, he agreed to send me a new Copperhead mouse if I return the faulty one directly to him. We should be receiving the new one sometime next week.

Also I sold my 8800GT for 140, and guess what? I can buy a new one for 125 ! I can't decide between the Gainward 8800GT 1GB with the dual slot cooler or an 8800GTX though...

And I sold a CM Stacker for 30 more than I payed for it. But there's something else, I sold it to somebody who goes by the name of "Reminez" and there is also somebody using that name here at CF, look at his sig.

Coincidence?

Here is the link BTW: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=260224511967

Yeah, the problem with DSL is that your speeds are dependent on your location. If you live far from the main DSL hub of your ISP, your speeds suffer quite a lot.

Oh well...I'm kinda happy with cable now. Though I'm not a big fan of Comcast though...

Yeah comcast sucks, even though they are fast and the pings are great.

The only reliability issue I have is when it goes out for a few hours when it rains.

So after a little tweaking my computer is stable, so I'm happy. And I got a cooler for my 9600GT today for $35, a thermaltake Duorb.
