You know how there used to be phones that had a cord connected to the wall?

Supposedly that had something to do with computers too

Ya, there use to be these things called audio cassete tapes that apparently alot of this weird group of people called Deadheads use to trade and listen to.

Silly question, of course everyone has ISDN by now.

Ha! I haven't seen an ISDN system here in the US since like '98. It never really caught hold here and has been pretty much dumped in favour of DSL. It remains popular in Europe I believe (which would explain why you referenced it--not many people on this side of the ocean know what ISDN is).

Yeah, I was afraid the reference was a bit obscure. ISDN didn't
really catch on much in Europe either, except for Germany
and the countries in Scandinavia. I doubt many people still
use ISDN in Europe, though.

Take Sweden, for example, the government forced the providers
of fiber-based broadband to also build the infrastructure
outside the major cities. What this means is that most people
in Sweden can cheaply get 100Mbit broadband. :shock:

Does DSL count as dial-up?? I guess it might as well...
