Ten ways to annoy your Internet Service Provider

10) Refer to their service as worse than AOL.*

9) Use your webpage allowance for hard-disk backup and fill up their hard drive.

8) E-mail other users endlessly about "The great deal over at AOL where the speed and service is better than here"*

7) Try to actually use all that bandwidth they claim to have.

6) Offer to back up their server, and use 720kb floppies

5) Log on with your home-built 34-bps modem and complain when the connection is too slow. Say it's their modem and not your "Souped up home-built cable modem"

4) Offer to sell your "Souped up home-built cable modem" to all their
customers.

3) Ask how much it costs to have a serial port connection to their server from your computer.

2) Ask how much it costs to have a parallel port connection to their server from your computer.

1) Ask how much it costs to set up your iPod as a server.

* Doesn't apply if AOL is your ISP.
