Out of the Blue

Just in time for all these E3 movies, my cable bandwidth was quietly upped, and I am now getting staggering 31 Mb/s downloads, close to 4 MB a second. This makes it more apparent than ever that in this brave new internet world, my old 1.5 Mb/s connection probably doesn't even qualify as broadband, as it was not really capable of downloading a lot of these clips, much less streaming them. Back in the day we had a joke about "Low Ping Bastards," but I think that's much too kind a description of the connection I'm currently enjoying.

I used a 56k modem up untill 2002 because I lived in a remote area on a mountain. I had a steady 200-250 ping where ever i played. I got good with it, and calling people lpb's was alway a good excuse for getting beat. Some times latency was to blame, and other times not.
My lpb status was a long time coming but was it ever nice to finally get it.
