think of it as a wall between your computer and the internet.

This wall only allows certain traffic through, such as web pages or email. The aim is to stop your computer getting fuxord by nasty hax0rs on the net, and in the case of the firewally im sitting behind, stoping me using all the uni's bandwidth uploading music to almostsmart.


Chubbie, I think you cant upload from dialup connections coz the php uploading thingy times out (due to the age it takes to upload), you may still be able to upload over ftp, weasel will let u know for sure.

Some days i aspire to be a fat, middle-aged, conservative Midwesterner, and currently spend most of my life downloading music from back when life was fun.

For the record, I didn't purposly make it so dialup people couldn't upload, http just wasn't designed for large file transfers to servers.

When I first came to this site almost 15 years ago (holy SHIT), I was looking for music from when I was about 35 years old, which is NOT when life was all that fun. At that time I was married with an approximately 10-year-old demonic child and life kind of sucked. Music from when life was fun would have been from the 70's - early 80's.

I'm still conservative, still married, kid is 30 years old now, I'm no longer fat (yay!), and still a Midwesterner. I'm 56 years old now (past middle-age) so probably not the demographic this site is looking for LOL. I just thought I'd stop back in and say hi. Just the fact that this thread has "dial-up" in the title is cracking me up.
