My Biggest Disappointment with DSL

Having had ADSL working now for a bit over a week, I'm finally able to 
run system updates and install packages the Linux way.  Boy, have I been 
missing out all these years while waiting for DSL service in my area.


Now my #$%@ telephone rings every couple of minutes, with robocalls.  In 
addition to the usual sales pitches (nobody pays attention to the 
so-called "do not call" list) there is now an endless stream of 
political pitches and push polls.  Dial up was slow, but at least it 
blocked my telephone line while I was on line.  Ah, nostalgia.
