Out of the Blue

I finally got to see League of Extraordinary Gentlemen on the satellite. Ouch. And I like comic book movies... I can't imagine how people who don't share that taste felt about this one (and I don't want to imagine what Alan Moore must think). On a happier note, I got to see Hero in the theater the other day. A good Jet Li movie... who knew? But I still have a vexing movie situation facing me: I have a free pass to see Alien versus Predator, but it's actually not playing at the local cineplex(?), meaning to see it I will have to (gasp) break with my movie routine. That's pretty drastic, we'll just have to see how that goes.

The maximum upload speed for a dialup modem depends on the modem standard used:

V.90 - 33600 bps
V.92 - 48000 bps

I think the reason they insisted you get the professional installation was because the box you get now is a transceiver - and the microwaves it puts out are quite hazardous to your health. If this is the case, you could get upload speeds close or equal to your download speed, but the latency would kill you - so it wouldn't matter.
