Over the past two years, I have noticed that dial-up connections with
NDO have become more and more unstable. This has nothing to do with
the inferiority of Skipper or NewMail. It also happens with VNC
Viewer, which normally is a very reliable application. It also
happens with different machines connecting to different providers,
although some providers are more prone than others.
I rather suspect that this may be the result of one provider modem
servicing several users at the same time. It feels to me as if the NDO
connection is not aggressive enough and gets "kicked out of the way"
by others. The result is either a "your connection was interrupted" or
a KR crash.
Does this non-technical description make sense to anyone?
