    i can't remember the longest dialup time i've got,
    should be a little more than a week...(win98 hangs!!)

    i have had more than 300hrs dialup hours in a month.
    after that, they don't even let me pay for the service...
    that's the time i changed to ADSL...:naughty:

    I have a separate line, but it's the ISP that causes the problem. Here in the UK most ISPs cut you off after 2 hours! Mine died at 6am this morning though :(

    I know how you feel, over here in Ohio I get disconnected from AT&T about every 8 hours. :grr: And then I have to dial up again, luckily I have my little P200 with Win2k serving it up. :) Sucks when you get disconnected in the middle of a download though. :(

    Indeed, cable modems are. So much for "dynamic" ip addresses however. I've had the same ip address for about a year now. How about you lot?

    > uptime
    2:25 up 119 days, 14:02, 1 user, load averages: 0.64 0.37 0.24
    >

    'Tis the box bit-tech is hosted on. Net connection never goes down. mySQL db server, on the other hand, is entirely another issue. ;)

    Anybody held a net connection longer than that? I'll compete with you broadband folk while the modemers have their own little competition. ;)

    Not bad at all, beats the hell out of most of the other ISPs I've tried. There's supposed to be a usage limit on the £15 package, and if you go over they're supposed to move you up to the £25 a month package but I must have exceeded it by now and I'm still being billed £15.
