in reply to The last time I used a dial-up modem was...
About a month ago I was in Shanghai, China, staying in the best known but very old hotel near the bund. I wanted to check my email, so late night I went to the business center to see how to get online (I've got my laptop/wireless, but didn't work there). The lady got the PC ready for me (there were only two PCs there, a good indication the service is not used much), after waiting for my yahoo email to come up, I commented to the lady "this is slooooow!", she said: "oh, it's dial-up". I stood up, apologized, and went to find a internet cafe nearby.
