I had a theory - abates
Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

that my 56k modem was overheating, which was why my connection tended to get crappier as the night wore on. To test this, I disconnected the modem and stuck it in the fridge for ten minutes, making it nice and cool. Then I tried reconnecting and got a connection at 26,400 baud.

Man, I hate dial-up.

I guess that means it's something else. Maybe the lines to the exchange are being affected by the heat, leading to reduced line speeds. it's 10:30pm - if anything I'd have thought they'd be cooling down by now. maybe that's the problem.

Either way, I don't think I can do anything about it, which pretty much sucks.
