    Makes me feel my broadband is slow... On the other hand, this way I don't have to buy terrabytes of hard drive space, which would certainly lead to a bankrupcy for me

    Hmmm...I think that I will get this connection speed, soley so I can download everything still at 28.8 KBPS or a similar speed due to the fact that all the servers will be way hella-slow compared to me...

    Then i think I will go onto a Napster-clone and download things from people at .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001Kbps just because i can with the new billion dollar modem i just bought.

    Good plan, eh?

    LOL.

    A.) Where's your wallet?

    B.) Dude, I was just pushing your buttons. Was j/k. HA!

    C.) Ok, let's say you DO have a T3 connection at home... Is your Net Riches site hosted by that? If yes, why are you stealing bandwidth by not copying images to your own server? Why do you hotlink most, if not all of them? Hmmmm...

    D.) If your site is NOT hosted by you on this T3, why not? Why would you pay a hosting company when you have all this bandwidth at your disposal?

    I do like your site, SDP. One question... How did you create the poll? I like that. Later!

    C.) I didn't know that you could host a site with a T3. We have no server thouhg. Stealing bandwidth?? What are you talking about?

    D.) See C

    It's okay SDP2006, I still think you are full of it. How can your parents afford a T3 line in their house? Do you realize what one is and how much it costs?

    I gotta go with spooks on this one. Even just for a T1 line, we are talking several hundred dollars a month... it might even be a thousand a month (I wouldn't be surprised). And that is just for 1.5MBps frame relay, a T3 is 45MBps up and down. You can't just go down to Best Buy and pick up the hardware to connect it up either.

    Tip: take a picture of the router/switch that is converting the line into ethernet protocols and then it might help us believe you.

    Look guys, I took a speed test at www.bandwidthplace.com and it told me 3.8 megabits per second. Then it had a chart at the bottom comparing me to a T1. I was way above it. If I misunderstood it, sorry. But I thought it was a T3 because of the chart at the bottom comparing me to a T1. So, don't call me full of it, because I'm not trying to lie. If I did, it was not intentional

    I think what he's saying is he's got a cable modem (or DSL) that hits beats T1 banwidth on occasion.

    But he doesn't beat my TK-421!
