...in 2008? Ten years ago I would have drooled over that (given I was still in primary school, that probably wouldn't have been anything out of the ordinary - I was probably still drooling over everything anyway) but in 2008, I can't see why you'd deliver DS3 over anything but fiber.

Hah, I heard that someone just had a service delivered to them over DS3.
In Australia.

My DS3 clue is safely where my ATM/LANE clue is - happily forgotten
after years of "medication" (choice: vodka + lime.)

Whats that? Line is getting random RX errors? Here's a few hundred
feet of coax to use as a "line attenuator" (placed in a cardboard box and
labelled as such.)

I like this game, who is next!
