My partner Molly hinted for a MP3 player for Christmas.* I jumped at the chance as it meant we would have to buy a new PC (have always used what they give me to dial in for work) to store the downloads (OK, I could have just bought an external hard drive but she won't know*
)* and upgraded to DSL. Weeeeeee !
I bought a souped up Dell XPS 400, 20" ultra sharp flat panel display, 160 gb external hard drive, DSL modem, printer and two (after researching I decided to get on for myself !) Sandisk 2G MP3 players with upgraded headphones for $2,150 !!! Our 18th anniversary is January 1st, so it's a combo gift to both of us.
I did it all from my Mother's 28.8 kb dialup - My God this is painful, 56kb is slow enough !!!!
