It was great when it existed, but even that was a bit of an illusion. :blink:
Or in other words... you just had to be there.
(Don't you hate that kind of response?)
And as for magenta, a former member here asserted that our best known resident photographic engineer was wrong, and magenta actually doesn't exist.
Here in Italy I have a friend who lives somehow "in the countryside" (not what an American would think when he thinks countryside. Let's say, a small centre with no cable high-speed provider) and he installed this bi-directional satellite device at basically the same cost of a normal internet connection. There is an upper bandwidth limit but is very large.
* Bi-directional. Old type satellite connection required a phone line for the upload. Satellite was used only for download. Internet connections need constant bi-directional link so one had to keep his phone line engaged (or use his ADSL upload stream in any case) in order to use the satellite stream. Modern systems allow upload by satellite and can be used in the middle of nowhere.
* magenta is a primary colour in subtractive synthesis so he must have actually meant something different.

It was always my understanding that brown is the color that does not exist.
We are in the age of hyper communication and censorship of the World Wide Web is no longer possible with both words and images.
