This makes me feel like upgrading my connection. I currently have 10mb/s down and 6mb/s up at home, which is not bad, but at the university I get wireless connection everywhere that is 60mb/s down and up. Fast internet is such a blessing.

I assume you finish putting together a guitar at every drop Philly? =)

Funnily enough, I was investigating today and I can't even get BT Infinity in my area.

But at the moment, it's a combination of a very slow broadband connection (I get less than 2 Mb/s) and a very clapped-out old PC.  :|

Funny thing. When in the Virgin store negotiating costs (which went like this) ...

Lew: "So can we talk about discount? I'm a loyal customer and have been with you for fifteen years. Could you reduce the £49.99 installation fee a little bit? I mean it's not like you have to do anything, you just plug it in. I can do that."
SomewelltrainedVirgindude: "No".
Lew: "I'll take it!"

I made a joke about how much faster I could download TV series' and movies from PirateBay and ISOHUNT (an ongoing joke to make my wife feel as uncomfortable as I can) and the dude said "I'll pretend I didn't hear you say that" then behind him some totally stoner Virgin dude with dreads said "Yea, man. Make sure you use a proxy first, though. Just Google it." and the other dude actually facepalmed himself.

That sounds like a request. I'll do it but only when you send my scat DVDs back.
