I'm online with a dial-up account most of the time (I usually disconnect for about 30 seconds every 25-26 hours). My ISP has never said anything about it and neither has the phone company - Verizon (formerly GTE). I've been doing this for years without problems, but I know that most ISPs won't let you stay on this much ;-) Cal Dixon (who gets his internet access from a guy named "Dave")
