From the 1960's to the early 2000's, technology was laughable compared to what we have today. While high-speed internet is pretty much de-facto now, I remember the days of dial-up. And they were horrible. Having stuff go through phone cables is neat in a sense but when it came to anything other than words, it was a slow journey. We lived with it until 2005 until we demanded our mother switch to cable internet. I really wanted to play Mario Kart DS online, and thankfully our mother had enough sense to do so. I also remember the horrible sound it'd make when starting, and do you remember someone saying "Get off the internet! I have to use the phone!"? There weren't many pros when it came to it, but a mountain list of cons.
Did you ever have to suffer with dial-up?
