Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

MY... GOD!!

Postin from work cause my home internet is ASS... ASSSSS... ASSSSSSS!!  Horrible.

I really need to switch to cable.  Cant afford the setup cost right now though.  The local dsl (att) IS WORTHLESS.  Im paying 30 bux a month for ONE POINT NINE mpbs, and it randomly fucks up every few weeks making it unusable.  I call the guys, they go through the routine, send a guy out, they fiddle with it, then it works for maybe 3 weeks before it goes back to ASSSSSSS!

Blargh. Cable internet is expensive, but hell, I'm going to have to eat the cost to switch eventually, this bullshit will NOT do at all.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On the commie drawing board:
Jackal comic(horribly past due X_x),Kitara-bear, Hinata-bear, godzilla, Lionness comic( <- THIS THING IS LONG!), Horse comic, More jackal comic, Wonderwoman-Gorilla comic, Catwoman and white queen piggies (squeal like a piggay!)Jasmine-cat comic, Dragon and Kangaroo comic (@_@) If you wanna commission a comic, be prepared to wait, A LONG TIME for me to get to you.

"You see, the challenges we face will not be solved with one meeting in one night. It will not be resolved on even a Super Duper Tuesday. Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. We are the hope of those boys who have so little, who've been told that they cannot have what they dream, that they cannot be what they imagine. Yes, they can."

cable is better than dial up.

Yeah you should definitely get cable! Hmm Just curious, what's the setup cost? Perhaps we can do a trade: setup cost for a picture?
Black-rat's avatar
Heh, with the equipment Id have to buy (or rent from cable company.. ugh) plus the installation,(this is an old duplex that's not even wired on this floor) it will cost a decent chunk to get all setup. I want to get my own modem to keep from getting fleeced by renting one. That alone can run me a wad depending on what sort I decide on. Also have to check to see if local cable monopoly has any "deals" going at the moment.

yeah cable is definitely a lot better. I have it. IT KICKS BUTT!

Yeah, my dad was thinking of switching to cable cause he has to pay a shit-load of money as well. I was thinking of convincing my mother to do that too cause SHE'S paying a lot of money cause of Youtube. Just to watch one Youtube video cost $70 :O

Either I get dialup, or I pay fifty bucks a month for half a megabyte per second on Verizon Wireless...with a five gigabyte bandwidth cap per month.

my setup ain't too bad to be honest though every once in a while it freezes up and dies on me and i have to reboot the whole thing, and it takes its time.
i don't know much about it, but it can be pretty slow sometimes.

i had the same problem with my Wireless-Lan...
when the technican was there it worked, when he was gone, 1 day later it flopped again :( But now i have the router near the Pc and it works nice. 54,0 Mbps is the wireless speed, but out of the power socket comes only (max.) 128 bps. Thats soooo slow, can't play online :( its worse.
