Your Internet Connection


It wasn't that long ago it seems when I use to think I'd never use a computer because I'm a country boy, hard working, blah blah blah. Well I'm not a yuppy by far but I tried a cable conection and got away from it fast enough not to be spoiled. I'm use to the slower land line and mostly, I'm use to the 15 or 20 dollar savings per month. I know I waist that much in preventable waist per job, but umm ok ok maybe I'm not right, but it works, it aint broke so i'm hanging on like an old timer. hmm I'm up too early cause I'm remembering the thought of once thinking people who paid for drinking water in a bottle had to be stupid, and if you'd told me I'd one day be doing that myself I would have bet the farm your about to lose that bet! hmm or those fancy and expensive CD players, WOW I once said I'll never afford those because they have lasers!
What gets my goat is the cassett player really did end up taking the place of 8-tracks, and Rubber roofs did end up making Hot Tar Roofs the underdog. ??? Anyone know of a good cable company to use?

sbcyahoo dialup at home. 995 amonth on the phone bill. HOw can i beat that. When working what ever the hotel has for me to use with my laptop. Some times i have to call down to front desk and say i can't figure out how to get online here with my laptop. They always send somebody up to get me going. I give 5 dollar tip for that. Actually i do that just about everywhere now. Meaning if worth a 5 dollar tip to a guy to get it on the internet for me so i don't have to mess with it.

I use a wireless card and share off of my neighbor's high speed. I fix his computer and he lets me use his internet for free. At work we have a very fast 150mb ATM fiber line between state buildings.
