hAkron Re:Easy, get dial up, then (465 comments)

When I had dial-up in the dark ages, I used to keep it up 24/7 just by having my mail client check for mail every minuet. I guess you could also just run a script that does a single small ping every once in a while. I did get some nasty emails from my ISP, but they never shut me down.
