Yippee! Yippee!

I'm reading uploading so fast that I don't have time to read another website while I'm waiting for pages to load!

Quite by accident, dh found out we have EDVO available via our cell phone provider, it's taken him 2+ days to get the laptop hooked up, and the network still isn't done, so I can't use it on my desktop yet - BUT YIPPEE! I've been complaining all this time about my 16.6 up to 24.4 connections, and this is going to be HEAVEN in comparison! If I learn that the network isn't going to work I"m going to cry to give it back up (but can't justify keeping it and only being able to use it on one computer - ESP. since just last week I paid for a years dialup!

I'll be working for a few weeks to pay for the hardware, but it's going to be worth it.

Congratulations Glenda! I remember how it feels to leave dial-up behind. I left it for good in '99 and am fortunate to have never been dragged back.

Living in a high speed wireless network world is Shangri-La!

It certainly is just like Shangri-La!

That sounds super ggh....
Never thought about those....

My kids have a card, so they can hook up when they are on the road....

They went with cable for their computer a few weeks ago...
Now they are totally wireless....in the house...and they gave up their desktop...got rid of the office....and just put the ''computer'' mess away when then are done.

I believe I will not do a desktop for my little office again....I'll do a laptop with a docking station....and then close the computer desk/cupboard door...and voila........the mess is hidden.

Im a 28800 dialup draggass...........
No hope for me....Embarq, if Id let them touch my TV Internet Combo...might get it for me...but they are so stoopid...I will check out satellite as a separate entity.

Son paid 199 bucks to have WildBlue installed and networked.......
I think its 60 bucks a mon then for a medium level service.............

I could go with a cheaper monthly....cause I don't download huge files.

Ah there is no justice....I did find a cell phone signal tho, in the north pasture at the very NW edge yesteray, when I thought I had rustlers.

Something new for me yesterday....Call Waiting/Caller ID kicked in....Ive never been able to get that...only Caller ID separate from Call Waiting........Now I know who's ''peeping'' when Im talking............big deal down here in the boonies.

I have offered to rent the SW corner of my South Pasture...to Cingular the New ATT for a tower that would make my phone work...........for a teeny amount of money.....................

IF I had know I'd love my LAPTOP so well, I would never
have purchased this desktop. The Laptop was a purchase so I
could have a 'puter downstairs convenient to my household duties!

NEVER again will we own a desktop, for when this one goes,
it's out the door! Maybe a larger Laptop, like our DIL has &
she writes for websites! If it's good enough for her, then, me 2!

SPEED when on any computer is the key word, SPEED!
