Maybe I do need to learn a new language...



  • ...because I don't quite get what that first button says. Plus, those suckers know nothin' 'bout MY meals, knowhatumsayin'?

     Learning a new language? You bet!

    P.S.: I'm stealing the advertiser's bandwidth with this one. Hurray!



  •  -5 points because you made me turn off AdBlock to see what you're talking about.



  •  Personally, I want to know what the "Cancel" option is for.



  • It's a new concept in advertising. If you didn't notice the flashing yes in the first 2 seconds, you're obviously just not interested enough!

    I disabled adblock too but still couldn't see the damn picture. I suppose it thought I really shouldn't look at it. Anyway, respectable idea to 'steal' the bandwidth but it won't matter much.

    Thank you, but I don't believe you heard my "What if everybody connected to the internet at once with a 56K modem and downloaded at full speed?" scenario yet ;-)

    The world would probable be a much better place.

     Boring, though.

    Or more likely, the ISPs would just crap out. Imagine giving every US citizen a 56K connection...that's right. It amounts to something like 14 Terabits. Even if you fraction that into 1000 ISPs, each one of them would need to be able to churn out 1.4 Gbits/sec uninterrupted and both ways on an international internet connection (not just by national or regional-scope frame relaying on their own private network). Needless to say, no ISP can single-handedly provide that much capacity, and that's just considering dial-up speeds. Scale this up to cable or DSL speeds...goodnight.

    I thought that's what Ren said...
