56 kbps in Slovakia?? You gotta be kidding me.

Haha, by the way, this very friend's old house DID have holes in the wall: the modem was located in the basement and had 16 cables going through the wall going to who-knows-where.

For the last time. I don't live in Slovakia, I live in Serbia, in Vojvodina.

Ah, I use my own Wi-Fi, but sometimes my laptop connects to the neighbor's, because they keep it in their garage (they converted to an office) and their garage is only three feet from my window. :lol:

At my dad's apartment, I just gave up trying to find his Wi-Fi signal, the neighbors on both sides, above him and below him all have their own Wi-Fi, so I just pick a random one. :P

What, they don't have Wi-Fi in Europe? :o
I always thought Western Europe had Wi-Fi everywhere.

I'd say his problem was that Germany, as far as I know, has become particularly stringent on illegal downloading recently.

Is there any other kind? I don't remember buying any legal software since... wait, I never bought any legal software in my life now that I think about it. And I haven't bought any software for years now. I download everything for free like everyone else does.

Uhm...That's bad, you've never bought software? Ever? I guess Slovakia's piracy laws aren't very strict if you've never bought any software.
