The Bear Family Enters the 21st Century

After years of dialup, we finally got cable Internet! The basic, slowest kind, but it's way faster than dialup, and it doesn't tie up the phone line. YouTube videos work, though not especially well, (they tend to pause for buffering unless on the lowest resolution) but videos on dialup were impossible. I don't plan on watching many videos, but streaming audio works fine, downloads are faster, and pages that downloaded slowly because they were graphically intensive are right there. Pages that load slowly because they are on a slow server are still slow, but now I can tell the difference.
