Oh dear, havent you read my enteries??

Right about now I’d give my left nut for broadband internet access.

I mean., I’m going to get a vasectamy (sp) anyway, might as well get some extra value out of things, right?

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Do not go with AT&t. I have been trying for over 3 months to get a stable, worth while connection. I moved up from dialup and in the last 3 weeks, I have been so tempted to go back! I know that sounds INSANE.. but if you had to wait over 4 hours just to get a connection which you should have already had, have techs come out and watched soap operas w/you because there is nothing else they can do to help you.. and have been on their free service due to lack of service since you signed on… YOu would RUN.. and I mean RUN FAST!!! Please, consider getting a DSL, or some other means of connection.
    BY The way.. My fastest upload rate has been stuck around 22.6KBS.. and download, while it is said to be unlimited has been capped at 128, and you really never get that anyway! Think about it dear!

    PS Let me know if the baby comes! Im so excited for you!

    The real problem is distance. I live in the woods. In the summer, I can’t see the neighbors houses because of all the trees.

    In other words, this is a semi-rural area.

    So, no cable TV, no DSL (I can actualyl stand at the end of my driveway and *SEE* where I could get DSL, if on;y my house were there), and ISND service ony because I’m special.

    And now all the ISPs are either reducing or dropping ISDN service. Yeah, great, meaning I *WILL* have to go back to 56K before too long, and 6 machines sharing a 56K line is ugly.

    or I’ll have to justify a T1, and I can’t spring for the $1k it’ll cost, I don’t think…
