The Crappiness of Connecting to the Internet

chelkitty rants about being forced to use dial-up internet for a little while, and the worst kind of dial-up too.

But oh no, fair eljayers, this is no ordinary dialup.

No, it is not AOL.

No, it's not Netzero.

It's Walmart Connect. Or at least that's what they call it. Basically, it's Compuserve with the Walmart logo on it. Which is basically ghetto-er AOL back in its Punkass days.

And people? It is utter crap.

It disconnects 2 minutes after sensing nonuse from its browser.
So guess what I have to do.

No more firefox. No more aim.

I have to use the effing thing.
And if anyone's used the aol browser before, they loads "faster"
because it compresses pictures to a nauseously vulgar level. Like you
know how some graphics load and slowly sharpen? Well, it's like stage 1
of the loading process. But perpetually. The world's hottest people
would be nothing more than sexy mocha-cream skinned blurry squares.
