While computers are geting faster and faster, communications links remain quite slow. Evidently, slow links are still bothersome to many users:

"This makes me sick. I'm sitting here using a two-year old, entry-level Macintosh computer with a cheap, non-Apple keyboard. People in most Third World countries don't even have 2400 baud modems. Even if they do, it's very unlikely they can get their hands on the right cables. And this guy, with the fancy shmancy helmet, expects us to see things from his shoes-not very likely!"

(this quote from , one of four entries of April 9, 1995)
