I just made the switch from dial-up to cable modem service. I have had dial-up for over 2 years. I have been having a blast downloading stuff, I can now download files that would have taken 1 or more hours with
my dial-up , in just minutes with cable.
I have also been visiting huge websites that
I never had the patience to visit.
Anyways I am looking for some cool downloads
to enhance my computer.
Recommendations appreciated!

We all are either related or it's just our manly nature to jump straight for the porn downloads.

I got RoadRunner 2 weeks ago and I went from downloading video at 2KB per second to 500+KB per second! My download speed tests have all been around 4+Mb but never lower than 2.3Mb. Upload speed is around 400Kb.

Welcome to the greatest thing since sliced bread!

You ever try playing games on the 'net?
Quake 2
Quake 3
Unreal Tournament
Descent 3?

These games will take full advantage of your
fast connection, and people will hate you.
It's great!
